There is NO ‘explosive’ eruption at the La Soufrière volcano at this time. Neither has an evacuation order
been issued.

La Soufrière continues to have effusive eruptions, as hot magma reaches the surface at extreme
temperatures. This appears in the night as fire or a bright red glow above the crater.

As the dome gets
higher and closer to the rim of the crater this phenomenon will continue to be visible on clear nights.

The team of scientists continue to monitor activities at the volcano and will advise NEMO accordingly of
any changes.

Please continue to listen to official sources: namely NEMO and the UWI Seismic Research Centre for all
information relating to the La Soufrière volcano.
