No Explosion at La Soufriere Tuesday Night — Expert


(iWitness News) There was no explosion at La Soufriere last night (Tuesday), contrary to a message circulated via WhatsApp.

“As with the last few days and weeks, activity overnight has been quiet,” geologist Adam Stinton, who leads the team of scientists monitoring the volcano, said on NBC Radio on Wednesday.

“There has been no eruption. I understand that there was a message on WhatsApp last night suggesting that there had been [an explosion]. I categorically can say there was no eruption last night,” Stinton said.

La Soufriere erupted explosively on April 9, after four months of effusive eruption, but the volcano has remained largely quiet since the last explosion on April 22.

“Activity has remained low, we have only had a few seismic events overnight and the volcano could just continue this sort of low level sort of unrest with the steaming visible and the gas output from the volcano,” Stinton said.
