St Vincent rocked by explosive eruptions of La Soufrière volcano

An explosive eruption rocked La Soufrière volcano on the eastern Caribbean island of St Vincent on Friday following mandatory evacuation orders from the local government. There were no immediate reports of casualties from the burst that occurred just four days short of the 42nd anniversary of the last eruption.

    It’s a super volcano. This is why it’s major news. The equivalent of a Yellowstone eruption if it truly explodes and then generates a Tsnuami slamming on the East Coast. They always talked about it in doomsday scenarios. Welcome to the world Soufriere

    @Gabriel Gonzalez Nonsense! La Soufriere has never had an eruption above VEI 4 in its history. For it to be classed as a super volcano it would have needed to produce an eruption of VEI 8. It just doesn't have that capability.

    It isn't a super volcano because it isn't big enough. Its magma chamber is tiny compared to the one at Yellowstone and it won't cause a tsunami because it's too far from the sea. About a third of the island would need to collapse for that to happen and La Soufrière hasn't got that kind of power.

Days into this and you already have people robbing stores and trying to scam old people. The civic spirit of the nation requires aid. A man should not have to fear his neighbor in such a time.
