Snowfall, which is a rare phenomenon, surprised the people of El Salvador, a small town in the Chilean Atacama Desert.
The snow hit the town of El Salvador on Wednesday, about 2,000 meters above sea level, in the center of the Atacama Desert. “For this time of year, the end of August, it is relatively unusual, as snow is usually seen here in June and July,” said meteorologist Daniel Díaz of the Northern Regional Meteorological Center. He added that rainfall occurs on average every two or three years.
The local had the opportunity to play with snow and make a snowman. – It is wonderful. I am 30 years old and this is the first time I see snow, said one Salvadoran resident. – We are very happy that our children can have a good time, get some fresh air – added another.
