Satellite imagery captures new emissions from La Safrier volcano on Sao Vicente Island | The world

Satellite images of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration captured the island of Chao Vicente in the Caribbean archipelago of Sao Vicente and the Grenadines this Sunday (11) amid a new volcanic eruption.

Oh La Saffrier erupted on Friday (9), dormant for decades, sending gray dark clouds about 10 km into the air, forcing some nearby residents to flee their homes.

In Kingstown, the capital of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean, noise continued to erupt from the volcano with ash covering roofs, cars and roads.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said it was unclear how much ash the volcano would emit, and that more than 3,200 were now in shelters.

The 1,235-meter-high La Sfrier has not erupted since 1979, and its largest eruption occurred more than a century ago, in 1902, when more than a thousand people died. “We’re trying to be nice, outside, and our silence is our sepulchral,” said Vinet Frederick, a 44-year-old lawyer in Kingstown.

Jen Bunnett, who lives on the 30-kilometer-long island, said people panicked when the eviction order was issued last Thursday (8), but the next day the situation calmed down. “We didn’t leave,” he said.

On Friday (9) afternoon, all the people living in the red risk area were evacuated to safer areas, the Disaster Management Agency said.

Royal Caribbean International and Celebrity Cruise said in a statement that they were sending two ships to assist in the evacuation.
