Ben's Ash Alert Center

or BAAC for short...

I was just looking at the Bureau of Meteorolgy's Volcanic Ash Advisory Centre web page (here). They have a page set up explaining a bit the current events with Chile's Puyehue-Cordón Caulle erruption. Most interesting is an animation of satelite images showing the ash plume circulate around Antarctica.

A quick look on Wikipedia shows that this pair of volcanoes have erupted about 7 times in the past 100 years, so they are fairly active in the scheme of things.

I'm just thankful that all of Victoria's volcanoes are no longer active, with the last eruptions happening about 7500 years ago.
