Chile: Several cities are covered with up to a meter of ash
The ash is like a thick layer of snow in large areas around the volcano Calbuco, in southern Chile. Some places the ashes is almost one meter thick.

On Wednesday the active volcano Calbuco erupted for the first time since 1972. On Thursday a new eruption followed.

There are no reports of any casualties or fatalities after the eruptions, but several houses and artifacts have been destroyed as a result of all the ashes. In addition, 45,000 people have been evacuated.

- The clock is ten in the morning and it's dark as in the evening. One can not see anything, it's like a very thick fog, says a resident of the town of San Martin, one of the cities closest to the volcano.

The ash is irritating to the respiratory and causes itchy eyes, and rescue workers in the area must face masks. The ash has also led to significant delays in the area.
