Thousands of dead fish wash up in a lagoon in San Luis, Argentina

(Photo The Diary of the Republic)
Thousands of dead fish appeared floating in a lagoon located south of Villa Mercedes, San Luis. According to the semi-arid site , the owner of the field where the water mirror is located said that this is not the first time it has happened.
 
In that sense, El Diario de la República recalled that something similar happened five years ago, under similar climatic conditions, very hot, although with the level of the lagoon lower than now due to lack of rain.
 
The causes so far are unknown but could be an overpopulation of fish combined with an alga that removes oxygen, others attribute it to the lightning fall over the lagoon.
 
The owner of the place also said that there are more ponds in the countryside, but this is the only one that has fish, does not allow fishing, but sometimes they get smuggled.

Jonesin’ for some serious powder? Winter in Chile and Argentina might have gotten off to a bit of a late start, but things are looking good after a huge snowstorm this weekend. The most snow fell on the Paso Internacional Los Libertadores, a mountain pass in the Andes between Argentina and Chile and about 3 miles from Portillo Ski Resort. Although some of the totals were no doubt influenced by the wind at the top of the pass,the Chilean government reported over 9 feet of snow and the pass remains closed. The ski areas throughout both countries also faired well, measuring anywhere from 2 to 5 feet of snow.
