Volcanic Ash Cloud Continues to Imperil Travelers in South America, Australia and New ZealandTen days of intermittent erupting by Chile’s Puyehue volcano has created an ash cloud stretching 6,000 miles through the atmosphere to Australia and New Zealand. The latest news reports carry accounts of cancelled flights throughout the southern hemisphere. On the ground, volcanic ash closed roads in southern Patagonia (Argentina).  Air traffic is reportedly often able to skirt the ash particles by flying at lower altitudes, but airports in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay halted flights today.
