Chilean authorities inform the population of the Araucania region, after notification of SERNAGEOMIN / OVDAS, over the alert level change of the Villarica volcano.

On February 6, the observatory reports an increase of seismicity, with a progressively more shallow signal of tremor, suggesting magma movements towards the surface, corresponding to a night glow observed in the night at the top of 02/05/15.

A continuous degassing, with a lower plume 150 meters is also reported.

The alert level was raised to Amarillo, given an increase of seismicity to non-standard values, confirming an unstable volcanic system. The rise of the lava lake was confirmed by a survey on 6 February.

The previous increase of activity date November-December 2014.

In connection with the activity of Villarica:

The seismologist C.Mora-Stock reported in a 2012 article, an increasing of tremor, LP Event and degassing rate at Villarica in the weeks before the earthquake in Maule, interpreted as caused by a magma flow in depth. The post-earthquake volcano activity corresponds to a structural adjustment, without reaching a critical stage and an eruption.
