arenal-volcano.jpgAsh from a volcanic eruption in Southern Chile has disrupted domestic flights at home for the first time, having travelled right round the world.
The puyehue-cordon caulle volcano started spewing ash into the atmosphere 2-weeks ago.

This caused travel chaos, first in Argentina, Uruguay and Southern Brazil, and later in Australia and New Zealand, but Chile remained relatively unscathed, until a number of flights were cancelled on Friday.

Meanwhile, Chile’s Mining Ministry has announced that the volcano was throwing out 3 million cubic metres of volcanic material a day, compared with over 30 times that amount when it first started erupting.
