CARBON DIOXIDE IN SOIL ON LOWER SIDES OF LA SOUFRIERE TO BE MEASURED

The National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) in its latest update concerning the ongoing effusive eruption at La Soufriere in St Vincent and the Grenadines says the gas plume coming from the dome continues to cause damage to vegetation in the summit areas on the south-western side of the volcano.

It says the measurement of carbon dioxide in soil along the lower sides of the volcano has commenced. A monument to be used as a benchmark for a new continuous GPS monitoring station was constructed at the Fancy seismic site.  

Work also continued at the Belmont Observatory with the installation of the seismic data acquisition system. 

A virtual community meeting for the North Leeward Community will be held later today.   

NEMO is reminding the public that no evacuation order or notice has been issued. It continues to appeal to the public to desist from visiting the La Soufri√®re Volcano, especially going into the crater, since doing so is extremely dangerous.
