Saint Vincent showers the Caribbean in ash
The destructive force of volcanoes is on show again, with La Soufrière waking after a 40-year slumber to blanket the island of Saint Vincent in smoke and ash.
Located in the Caribbean, Saint Vincent is the largest island of the country ‘Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ island chain. The island of Saint Vincent is dominated by the 1220-metre tall La Soufrière volcano, which is French for “sulphur outlet”.
La Soufrière began rumbling in December 2020, before a full-blown eruption on April 9 and several more since.
