The Calbuco volcano has erupted again, sending bursts of ash and hot rock billowing into the air and prompting Chilean officials to order a new evacuation of nearby residents.

A thick plume poured from the 6,500ft cone, bringing the threat of heavy ash fall over villagers struggling to clean up from two huge blasts last week.

The eruptions at the Calbuco are the first in more than four decades. About 4,500 people have been evacuated since the Calbuco roared back to life on April 22, sending ash about 11 miles into the sky.
