      Puyehue volcano pounds landscape with smoking debris (VIDEO)

      While it seems to have settled down somewhat{} - check out the webcam - Chile's Puyehue volcano is leaving behind a grand performance that won't be forgotten by locals anytime soon.

      Below is footage shot during the volcano's height of pique. A brawny smoke snake extends from the caldron high into the air, thrashing around and graying the skies all the way into New Zealand, where flights just resumed after a week-long hiatus. (Photo gallery.) In neighboring Argentina, the fusty precipitation has caused a state of emergency and produced ultra-sad cows covered in ash. Footage toward the end of the video shows clods of solid volcanic debris pummeling the land after being hurled far into the atmosphere.
