The Caribbean Community (CARICOM) has mobilized to support St. Vincent and the Grenadines as it faces the possibility of an imminent eruption of La Soufriere Volcano.

Following an evacuation order of the immediate area around the volcano by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, CARICOM Member States have offered support to house evacuees from the affected area.

The scientific team from the University of the West Indies (UWI) Seismic Research Center (SRC) has been in the country constantly monitoring the volcano and rendering scientific advice to the Government of St Vincent and the Grenadines. The Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA) has been working alongside the St Vincent National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO), the SRC and the Regional Security System (RSS).

CDEMA has activated its regional support operation including the deployment of a specialist to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The Agency is providing technical assistance to NEMO with Evacuation and Logistics Planning.

The Community stands with the Government and People of St Vincent and the Grenadines in this perilous situation.
