Chileans can’t seem to catch a break these days.

Less than a week after Chile’s Puyehue volcano erupted, forcing thousands to evacuate, a freak storm hit another part of the Andean nation, injuring nine. The tornado-like storm struck the town of Villarrica in southern Chile with winds of 75 to 110 miles, reported CBS.

Raw video footage captured the intense winds and rainfall, fallen trees and spiraling debris. Bewildered residents were also shown roaming through the damage the storm left in its wake. Roofs were torn off and property destroyed.

Other pockets of the globe have been rattled with extreme weather this week, including Haiti, where heavy rain and flooding have killed at least 23.
