Officials leave T&T to monitor La Soufriere


    Officials have left Trinidad and Tobago to go to St Vincent and the Grenadines for monitoring of La Soufriere Volcano.

    Among those from UWI’s Seismic Research Centre heading to the island is Director Dr Richard Robertson – a St Vincent national himself.

    Around 8AM today, Dr Robertson posted to Twitter that the UWI team was packed and ready to depart.

    Officials are monitoring the volcano on St Vincent as it continues to ooze magma and other materials.

    The alert level for the country is at orange and residents in communities near the volcano have been asked to be on alert for increased activity.
