Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcanic eruption heats Nilahue River- leads to death of 4.3 million fish

June 11, 2011CHILE – Standing on the bank, three residents of a small Chilean village watch as steam hauntingly rises from the local river. With one using his camera to capture the spectacle, the grey-coloured water flows past, laced with stones and ash from the nearby volcano. And the steam that hangs above the Nilahue River is caused by rocks spewing from the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcanic eruption in the Andes of eastern Chillie. The usually chilly river temperature of six degrees has been raised to an average of around 45 degrees by the eruption. The huge surge in temperature has caused more than 4.3 million fish to die since it began last Saturday. The eruption also forced the evacuation of 3,500 people from around the site, while a ten kilometre exclusion zone was also set up. –Mail UK

    The ash covering the surface of lakes and rivers nearby would quickly deprive the waters of oxygen and light. With the addition of such a rise in water temperature, hardly anything will survive in these waterways. Another large extinction of earth’s creatures. Isn’t it said that people will be eating their children?

    The way things are going, eating fish will soon be something we used to do.

    Just heard on the news tonight that the ash cloud from Chile has or is about to reach New Zealand. About 9,400 kms away.
