Officials in Chile and Argentina have ordered the evacuation of areas near the Copahue volcano following a red alert warning of a very high chance of an imminent eruption.

The volcano, located between Chile's Bio Bio region and Argentina's Neuquen province, has seen increasing seismic activity in recent weeks but has not yet erupted.
