St. Vincent Island (Florida)

“Lightning, thunder and rumblings” on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines remains on the rise, the U.S. Meteorological Agency said.

Severe white ash has lashed parts of the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent, a day after a massive volcano erupted.

The volcano, known as Argyle International Airport, has since sent clouds of black ash into the air.

In Kingstown- the capital of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the ash covered roofs, cars and streets.

Civil Defense Agency Nemo tweeted today that most of the country was gripped by blackouts in addition to a further explosion that shook its island.

A witness at the city around two miles from the volcano, Rabaka, told Reuters that about 12 inches of ash and shrubbery was lying on the ground, caused by the massive La Soufriere volcano explosion that forced thousands of residents to evacuate.
