  • Global News published this video item, entitled “La Soufriere volcano erupts again, threatening thousands in St. Vincent” – below is their description.

    St. Vincent’s La Soufrière volcano blew through its dome in the largest explosive eruption to date on Monday, as heavy ash blanketed the eastern Caribbean island.

    Experts recorded a “huge explosion” from the volcano as its eruption tore through its top and reshaped the peak entirely.

    La Soufrière began erupting on Friday, triggering evacuation orders for 16,000 people. Officials still fear that some holdouts will not get out in time. Relief efforts are underway to supply the island with cots, tents, water tanks and other basic supplies. Empty cruise ships have also shown up to receive evacuees, although those evacuees have largely remained on the island so far.

    The current eruption is expected to last days or weeks. Parts of the nearby island country Barbados, to the east of St. Vincent, is also blanketed in volcanic ash carried by winds.
