(NEWS784) – 105 emergency shelters have been identified across St Vincent. These shelters would be used to house evacuees as St Vincent prepares for a possible eruption of the La Soufriere Volcano.

Evacuees would come from Fancy to Georgetown on the North-Western corridor and Fitz Hughes to Coulls Hil on the North-Eastern corridor of mainland St Vincent.

It is expected that some 20,000 persons would be evacuated in the event of an explosive eruption.

  1. Are the authorities declaring Spring Village in North Leeward safe from an explosive eruption? With two very huge domes now, isn’t there a greater likelihood that more material than 1979 will be expelled from the crater to affect residents negatively if an explosive eruption occurs? Isn’t it likely that Spring Village will be affected greatly too? What’s really going on with the authorities? Do they really know what they are doing? I wonder!
