  • Rare Chile Snowfall Kills 1, Leaves Hundreds of Thousands in the Dark

Vehicles on a street in Chile's capital of Santiago were covered in snow on Saturday due to a rare snowfall.

Meteorologists say this is the heaviest snowfall in Santiago in a decade, which has caused massive traffic disruptions and forced the postponing of several sporting events including some Copa Chile tournament games.

More than 250,000 people were reportedly left without power - thought to be caused by snow-laden trees falling onto power lines.

"It is true: In Santiago it is snowing".

Santiago, Chile, was blanketed with white Sunday morning, as the heaviest snowfall since 2007 hit the city.
