UWI Seismic Research Team Arrives In St Vincent Today

A team of three scientists from the UWI Seismic Research Institute is expected to arrive in St Vincent Today.

The Team will be assisting local NEMO officials with the monitoring of La Soufriere volcano, which began showing signs of activity on Tuesday.

The team comprises Vincentian born Prof Richard Robertson, Ian Juman and Lloyd Lynch and two others.

Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves said on Tuesday at a media conference that the scientists would be flown to St Vincent on regional security system aircraft.

On Tuesday Prof Richard Robertson told the Vincentian media that the La Soufriere volcano is currently going through a stage of effusive eruptions.

No prediction can be made at this time if La Soufriere will move from the effusive stage to an explosive one, he stated.

Prime Minister Gonsalves urged citizens living close to the volcano to make all necessary preparations to evacuate in case an order is given.
