No new information has been given in NEMO’s latest update regarding the growth of the dome at La Soufriere Volcano in St Vincent and the Grenadines however technical updates have been shared.
NEMO says the camera set up at the La Soufrière Volcano was replaced. There are also plans in place to install a new seismic station at Bamboo Range on the eastern (Windward) side of the volcano.
Equipment for installation is being prepared by the Seismic Research Centre and Soufrière Monitoring Unit Team. Some maintenance work was done on the equipment installed at NEMO and this station is now fully operational.
NEMO says its staff will be conducting a drive-through in the Rose Bank Community on Friday. The purpose of this drive-through is to update residents on the state of the La Soufrière Volcano, and to provide information on evacuation procedures and individual preparedness.
NEMO is reminding the public that no evacuation order or notice has been issued and continues to appeal to the public to desist from visiting the La Soufrière Volcano, especially going into the crater, since doing so is extremely dangerous.
