The region of Los Lagos, Chile is currently stuck in an unprecedent water crisis due to lack of rain.
Major lakes and rivers are considerably drying up threatening communities and animals living around lake basins and river banks.
Lake Riesco has almost disappeared overnight beginning of this month in the Aisén Region in Chilean Patagonia.
Now several lakes and rivers are dramatically shrinking due to lack of rain in the region of Los Lagos, Chile, just north of the Aisén Region.
Residents of Región de Los Lagos, literally Region of the Lakes, report a worriyng decline of the water level of their hydrological network.
The second largest lake of Chile, Lake Llanquihue, has reached its lowest level in nearly 40 years.
Two other large lakes, the Rupanco and the Puyehue, are also losing lots of water.
In some sector, the beach has grown from 20 to 200 meters and in areas normally covered by water you can walk or even drive your car.
Residents also report that the flow in rivers is also decreasing. Even springs have dried up.
Experts attribute this alarming situation to lack of rain and low snowpack on top of the Osorno volcano.
