    What a disaster!

    Have to hope the recovery is sooner rather than later.

    Chileans are our friends, hope the next government can provide any assistance, if requested.

    And you put salmon hatcheries in a volcano danger zone because ..............? At least 10 eruptions since 1837. Didn't the eruption in 1961 give a clue? It reminds me of how the Italians have built Naples around Vesuvius. I could understand it back in the first century when people thought that an eruption was a god turning over. But now?

    And the article mentions difficulties of access to the affected area. I'm not surprised. The whole area is fully of national parks and reserves. If the prevailing winds are from the south west, move the hatcheries west!

    Wasn't Chile's salmon aquaculture already suffering infectious salmon anemia?

    @4. But then you don't know where the volcano is, do you? If you had even one cell between those useless flaps each side of that skull, you'd be able to tell that the Pacific Ocean is at least 60 miles away. And WE didn't build London.

    Do you have any nuts?

    Conqueror is completely correct about London, but obviously has no understanding about the dangers we Chileans have to accept and adapt to here. Between, Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Volcanic Eruptions, Severe Droughts, Extreme Flash Flooding and the Hantavirus..... Chile is a very safe place.
