News Americas, KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent, Mon. May 10, 2021: The ‘La Soufrière’ volcano is now at an alert level of orange, down from red as of last Thursday but the UWI Seismic Unit warns that the volcano continues to be in a state of unrest and escalation in activity can take place with little or no warning. At least six people are still in the Sandy Bay Village in a village in Charlotte Parish, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and one of the areas in the so-called “Red Zone” area that has taken a huge hit from the 32-eruptions of the La Soufriere volcano, which began on April 9, 2021. The village is located on the north shore of the island of Saint Vincent at only 62 feet above sea level. Here’s a view of the destruction as seen by our News Americas News Network crew who visited Sandy Bay Village on May 6, 2021.
The Saint Vincent Volcano Disaster Relief GoFundMe by Invest Caribbean and The Ritzury Group is raising immediate funds to satisfy urgent needs, while medium term, the two agencies plan to use ongoing donations to focus on bigger issues like housing, relocation, clean-up efforts, and humanitarian aid. Long-term relief will take the form of financial aid for families still in SVG, care of elderly, care of students and access to continuing education.
