High Commission for Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, UK

UK-SVG COMBINED RESPONSE TO LA SOUFRIERE ERUPTION


Assistance Request for St Vincent and the Grenadines




9 April 2021

As you know the activities at the La Soufriere volcano in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines have become a matter of serious concern and that the Prime Minister issued an evacuation order for people living around the area of the volcano. That order affected in excess of 20,000 people. In less than 24 hours more than 2,000 people entered shelters provided by the Government. This number will inevitably increase. These shelters are schools, churches, community centres and hotels.

The evacuation process will increase depending on the intensity of the volcanic eruption.

Three cruise ships from Royal Caribbean and two from Carnival have offered their assistance for evacuation. The ships started to arrive last night and will continue to do so. Assistance have been offered to take persons, if the need arise, by several countries of CARICOM.

The resources of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines are very limited and any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated

Thank you for your interest in our small nation and for your usual co-operation.
