Chile Catches a Chill: Santiago Sees First Snow in 10 Years

Vehicles on a street in Chile's capital of Santiago were covered in snow on Saturday due to a rare snowfall. About 250,000 people were hit by power cuts, officials said, mostly caused by snow-laden trees falling on cables.

One worker reportedly died while trying to clear the ice, and a further two were injured by a collapsed power line.
