There is currently a video circulating, which claims to show a Lahar (mud slide) in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
No lahars have been observed in SVG. The videos circulating shows a flooding event in Richmond.
Helicopter surveillance showed a landslip higher up the river and heavy rainfall resulted in the material coming down.
The activity from the effusive eruption remains within the crater and the summit of La Soufrière.
A Lahar occurs when ashfall mixes with mud and river flows. No Lahar has occurred from the La Soufrière volcano.
The National Emergency Management Organisation NEMO will continue to bring you verified, up to date information on the current effusive eruption with the scientific advice of our partners at UWI Seismic Research Centre.
