Volcanic ash on Lake Nahuel Huapi, Argentina

Puyehue volcano in Chile has been erupting since the 4th of June, sending up columns of ash that have shut down air traffic as far away as Australia. This footage was taken more than 100 miles from the volcano, at Argentina's Lake Nahuel Huapi, where the normally clear water has been turned into something resembling a giant pit of quicksand.

No word on how this natural disaster has affected Nahuelito, the Lake's resident monster, though I'd imagine this can't be good for most wildlife. I get a little shiver just watching that diver go down at the end of the video. Hopefully, he or she came back up again.
