The volcano alert level has changed from the red zone to the orange zone a few days back. 

UWI Seismic research provided an update on La Soufriere volcano on 19 May 2021 that states –

  • Seismic activity at La Soufriere, St Vincent, has remained low since the tremor associated with the explosion and ash venting on 22 April.
  • When the cloud is – high enough, there is tenacious steaming observable from the observatory.
  • Thermal irregularities indicating high temperatures inside the new crater continue to be detected by the NASA FIRMS alert system. These have been persistent since the April 22 explosion.
  • The La Soufriere volcano continues to be in the state of unrest. Escalation in-activity can take place with little or no warning. 
  • Caution should be taken in crossing river valleys on the volcano due to the increased risk of lahars(mudflows) during periods of rainfall on the volcano.

NEMO has still asked the people to remain careful.
