Southern Chile cut off by 6ft of snow


2 Aug 11 - Major storms in July dumped more than five times the annual amount of rain and snow on parts of the world's driest desert, blocking highways, forcing cancellation of a top Chilean football match and damaging homes.

A similar wet stretch in early July dumped four years' worth of rain in one day on coastal Antofogasta.

"That was just a quarter of an inch," says this article by Eva Vergara, "but it was still enough to cause collapsed or leaking roofs in homes and businesses that usually have no reason to protect themselves against even minimal precipitation."

The same storm also brought as much as three feet of snow to mountains that normally receive zero precipitation during the southern winter.

The article goes on to prattle about global warming.
