So this is what the Apocalypse looks like.

Chile’s Calbuco volcano erupted multiple times Wednesday night for the first time in over 40 years, turning the sky into a scene straight out of Hell.

The eruption was captured in some pretty amazing video footage and photos. Watch the clip above as ash pours out into the red sky while lightning flashes in the background.

4,000 people have been evacuated from the area, including 1,500 residents from the town of Ensenada, after Chile’s National Service of Geology and Mining (Sernaageomin) issued a “Red Alert.”

“There was a lot of panic, lots of chaos, traffic jams, people going to supermarkets, everyone looking for water, trying to take out money from the ATMs,” said one witness according to CNN.

The volcano last erupted in 1972, according to the Associated Press, and another volcano, Villarrica,erupted back in March.

So far there have been no injuries or deaths reported, said Interior Minister Rodrigo Peñailillo, but some flights have been cancelled.
