Volcanic eruption in St Vincent forces more people to flee homes

As a result of the explosion of La Soufrière volcano in St Vincent, more people are now fleeing their homes.  

The eruption could continue for some time, said Richard Robertson, the lead scientist at the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Center. 

“It’s likely that at some point it would quiet down and hopefully we would have a break so that we could recover a little bit more, but don’t be surprised if after the break it picks up like this again,” Robertson said.
