LA SOUFRIÈRE BULLETIN # 24 JANUARY 25, 2021 8:00 PM
- Generally clear views of the volcano indicate that the damage to the vegetation due to acidic gases continue to creep downslope.
- The monitoring team spent the entire day at the Belmont Observatory involved in further preparation of the facility for eventual full-time occupation by monitoring scientists. They also spent time sorting equipment for eventual field deployment.
- NEMO and the SRC will be hosting a Virtual Community Meeting with residents of Georgetown on Tuesday 26th January, 2021, beginning at 6:00 p.m. to update residents on the latest development at the La Soufriere Volcano and to discuss the Georgetown Community Evacuation Plan. This meeting will be broadcast live on NBC Radio, VC3 TV, NEMOSVG Facebook Live, UWI Seismic YouTube Channel and UWI TV Global.
- Alert level remains at Orange. The volcano continues to exude magma on the surface and steam can still be observed from the Belmont Observatory. Persons living in areas close to the volcano should expect strong sulphur smells for several days to weeks, depending on changes in wind direction.
- The National Emergency Management Organisation is reminding the public that no evacuation order or notice has been issued.
- NEMO continues to appeal to the public to desist from visiting the La Soufrière Volcano, especially going into the crater, since doing so is extremely dangerous.
- NEMO will continue to provide regular updates on all activities taking place at La Soufriere.
