April 12th – Comprehensive report, the National Disaster Mitigation Risk Management Agency of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, a Latin American Caribbean island country, said that the eruption of the Soufrières volcano on the island of Saint Vincent caused water and power cuts.
The bureau tweeted on social media: “The volcano of Soufrier erupted again, and there was a large-scale power outage. There is lightning, thunder and roar. Most of the area was without power and ash was dropped.” Everything is like a battlefield.
It is reported that gray volcanic ash covers the streets, homes and buildings on St. Vincent Island, and the air is also smisted with thin volcanic dust fog, permelling the smell of sulfur. Most houses have no water and electricity supply so far.
According to the Associated Press, more than 16,000 people have been evacuated due to natural disasters, and no casualties have been reported.
According to CNN, the authorities do not rule out the possibility that the volcanic eruption will last “for several days or even weeks”. The volcano first erupted on April 9, and the erupted ash cloud was 20,000 feet (about 6,000 meters) above the ground.
The country’s Disaster Reduction Authority reported on the eruption of Mount Sufrières on the 9th and called on residents to immediately evacuate the red dangerous area. Earlier, Ralph Gonzalves, Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, ordered the evacuation of part of the country’s 110,000 population due to the threat of volcanic eruption.
