The National Geology and Mining Service raised the alert level for the Lascar volcano in northern Chile from "yellow" to "orange" on Jan. 28, following an increase in seismic activity and fears of a possible eruption, reported. The authorities predicted eruptive pulses with columns more than three miles, projecting pumice blocks and ash spread over a large area. The volcano last erupted in 1993.
