The volcano Calbuco, which was sleeping for almost 43 years, woke up April 22, 2015. More than 4,000 people within a 20km (12 mile) radius were evacuated. The red alert is maintained as they fear new possible eruptions.
Wayne Adams and Catherine King have spent the past 20 years building their own island near British Columbia. It is called Freedom Cove and has 12 floating platforms that run off of solar power. It is also a self-sufficient food garden. In winter, Wayne and Catherine collect rainwater for drinking and in summer, they use a nearby waterfall.
