As the Eastern Caribbean continues to follow the eruption of the La Soufriere volcano in St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Joan Underwood, an Antiguan citizen who resides in Barbados, gives REAL News an update on the effects being felt in that country.
Volcanic ash blanketed the island a few days ago, causing the Mia Mottley Administration to turn on street lights in the middle of the day due to the poor visibility.
Underwood says that residents have also been given advice on how to deal with the heavy ash fall.
According to Underwood, the public transportation system has been curtailed for the moment on account of the dangerous driving conditions caused by the substance.
In St. Vincent, the eruptions are said to be slowing down; however, the magma flow is expected to continue until there is no material left to “boil over.”
