(Trinidad Guardian) A seismic station located in Greiggs, St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), was vandalised and equipment stolen, earlier this week, according to a statement issued by the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO).
The NEMO statement said:
“The Soufriere Monitoring Unit visited the site at Greiggs on 30th March, 2022 where a seismic station is installed. The wires to the seismic station were cut and the solar panel removed. This site was established in June 2021 after the explosive eruptions of the volcano. This means that no data is available from this site.”
“The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) is making an urgent plea for members of the public NOT TO TAMPER WITH OR REMOVE ANY EQUIPMENT THAT IS USED TO MONITOR ACTIVITY AT THE LA SOUFRIÈRE VOLCANO.”
The organisation has issued an urgent call for information on the incident so that action can be taken.
