  1. Franco Demaria says:

    It calls my attention that in the photographs the ash was so abundant that you couldn´t see the sun´s light from the earth.
    what is most catastrophic is that in Chile 3500 people were evacuated.

  2. mateo vidal says:

    a. That it seems like all the air in the earth explode like when a real explosion of a volcanoe becomes.

    b. I find catastrophic the evacuation of all that amounts of people in Chile and the close of the skiing for twenty four hours.

  3. Ignacio Gallegos says:

    a. What calls my attention about the photos is the huge ammount of volcanic ash that is in Bariloche, it covered streets, routes, cars and the skie. I could also see that people were wearing chinstraps. The ash cloud was enormous.

    b. I found really catstrophic this ones: the first one, the second one, the fourth one, the eighth one and the ninth one.

    What calls my attention about the photos is that a lot of volcanic ash is falling in the earth, and, that I’ve never seen something like this before, it’s a lot for me it’s very dangerous because you are driving and you have all that in your car you cannot see and you crash, i have read in the newspaper that this ash has little parts of “vidirio” and that would be dangerous for the body.
    this ones: –
    The Chilean government originally required the evacuation of 600 people but soon widened the evacuation zone to over 3,500 people.
    – Argentine officials in La Angostura announced late Saturday that the Andean town of 16,000 people was on “red alert” and residents were urged to ration water use.
    – Citizens of Bariloche are encouraged to stay inside their homes, wear masks, and not go outside nor drive cars.

    The things that called my attention about the photos were that they show how this volcano affected many things and how the ash expanded in a lot of places near the volcano.

    “Several centimeters of black, sand-like ash has covered the city of 130,000 inhabitants.” I find this realy catastrophic because this afect many people and it is dangerous.
    “The Chilean government originally required the evacuation of 600 people but soon widened the evacuation zone to over 3,500 people.” this is catastrophic because it means that this became more dangerous to more people.

    “Argentine officials in La Angostura announced late Saturday that the Andean town of 16,000 people was on “red alert” and residents were urged to ration water use.”
    I chose this because I think that is very bad that too much people are in red alert because it is Risky to them because they have to ration the use of water and water is indispensable for living, and if its longs too much time it will became a very serious problem.

    what calls my attention of the images is that people try to draw the cenis but never seems enough because they fall back.

    for me they are all important they are all true. Argentina and Chile are at risk ash fall 24 hours a day and there is nothing they can do. The airports are closed you can not travel There are many that are coming to Australia!

  7. Lucas.P says:

    That there are too many ashes and that’s not got because you cant go out like nothing.You have to wear a mask!.

    The consequence that they dont have much water and there are many people.

  8. Mechi Anelo says:

    a- What calls my attention about the photos is: that the first one shows the explotion and how much it produces ashes. (it is like in the movies). The next ones show how the people of Chile and Argentina lives after the explotion, with a lot of domestic problems.

    b- The next consequences i find really catastrophic:
    -The Chilean goverment required the evacuation of 3500 people.
    – It is recomended to stay at home and use masks because of the ash.
    -Officials in Bariloche have declared a state of EMERGENCY.
    I choose this ones because i think this explotion changed people’s life for many years, because the ashes wil stay there for a long time.

    A. It calls my attention the first photo, if you don’t look carefully it seems that is another dark cloud, and how this eruption affected everyone in that zone.
    If you want to see something about the lake in Bariloche, see this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_cXUVZJxP8
    B. The ones that I really catastrophic are:
    -Ash to fall on Bariloche for at least 24 hours.
    -Several centimeters of black, sand-like ash has covered the city of 130,000 inhabitants
    -Argentina’s National Emergency Office said it had recorded an average of 230 tremors an hour before and after the eruption of Puyehue.

    Volcanic ashesin Chile and Argentina.

    1)The photo that calls my attention is the first one, of the ash cloud .Because I did not think that the cloud was so big. The other photo that impacted me is the one of the girl that is taking out the ash of the car, because there it is a lot of ash because its complicates their normal life.
    2)The ones are that Bariloche´s airport is closed and lots of planes are delayed and people are trapped because of ash cloud.The one of thay can not go out of their houses, they can not drive and that they have to use a masks because the ashes prevents that they can continue with their normal life.And the last one that i think it is catastrophic is the one that says ash fall for 24 hours in Bariloche ,because all the streets and the cars are covered of ash, you can not drive and this ash can ruin their season.

    1)

    in the first picture what catches my attention is that if you look just like that looks like a hurricane or a whirlpool, but if you see a cloud of ash and what he calls my attention in the other photos is that there was much ash and sand seemed and besides it was toxic.

    2)
    the most catastrophic consequences are that in Chile was very dicificil to leave the house or traveling or going to work or go to colegio.tambien is very easy for people to become sick or die, and especially children.

  12. Sofi Achaval says:

    The thing that call my attention is the huge cloud of ash. In the second photo, the thing that call my attention is that the amount of ash that fell on Argentina and Chile was very huge.
    That in Bariloche ash fall has not stopped at least 24 hours.
