Volcano erupts on island of St. Vincent, blasting ash 20,000 feet into the air

ST. VINCENT / CNN — A volcano on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent erupted, sending ash plumes 20,000 feet into the air.

The volcano, named La Soufrière, is located on the largest island in the St. Vincent and Grenadines chain, the country’s National Emergency Management Organization said.

“Explosive eruption at La Soufrière,” NEMO officials tweeted. “Ash plumes up to 20,000 feet headed East,” it added.

“Please leave the red zone immediately. La Soufrière has erupted. Ash fall recorded as far as Argyle International Airport,” NEMO’s post said.

Evacuation orders were put into place in about a dozen districts of St. Vincent, affecting roughly 6,000 to 7,000 people, a spokesperson for the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre, or UWI-SRC, told CNN.

The island was on red alert, which meant an eruption was “imminent now,” NEMO said.
