NEMO the National Emergency Management Organisation says ongoing explosive eruptions at La Soufriere based on past patterns are likely to continue a few hours with peak (largest plume) in minutes to an hour.
Geologist Richard Robertson the activity at La Soufriere will continue with periodic explosions.
Robertson speaking on NBC Radio on Wednesday 14 April, said the gap between eruptions would increase, and it is conceivable at some point that the explosions would stop and a period of quiet will begin.
“Now we don’t think that has ended yet, and even though the quiet period goes for a long time, I don’t think we would be convinced that it has ended, and it’s possible at some point, new explosions could occur”.
The latest eruption occurred at about 11.38 am on Wednesday 14th April.
NEMO says the volcano continues to erupt explosively and has now begun to generate pyroclastic density currents.
