La Soufriere has moved into an explosive state.
Minutes after tweeting that the volcano had moved into an eruptive state, the National Emergency Management Organisation’s (NEMO) Twitter account tweeted: “Please leave the red zone immediately. La Soufriere has erupted. Ash fall recorded as far as Argyle International Airport.”
They had reported earlier that there were plumes up to eight kilometres and ash was expected to fall within five minutes.
