. Saint Vincent volcano: Heavy ash rains down on island « JO LEE MAGAZINE

BBC NEWS/The Caribbean island of St Vincent has experienced heavy ash fall and sulphur smells after Friday’s eruption of the La Soufrière volcano.

A layer of ash has blanketed buildings and roads around the island, including in its capital Kingstown.

Witnesses said the volcano was still rumbling and emitting dark clouds of ash thousands of metres into the air.

Thousands of people have been forced out of their homes, and on Thursday Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves urged more than 16,000 residents in “red zones” to evacuate.
