SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — Chile’s government has issued a red alert and ordered the evacuation of residents living within 25 miles (40 kilometers) of a rumbling volcano.

Interior Minister Rodrigo Hinzpeter says 97 people living near the Hudson volcano will be evacuated and he is not ruling out the possibility of an eruption.

The Southern Andean Volcano Observatory says seismic activity related to the volcano increased starting early Tuesday night.
