On April 9, 2021, La Soufrière erupted explosively for the first time in over 40 years, sending an ash plume 10km into the sky. Subsequently multiple eruptions have been reported. An estimated 290,841 people in St. Vincent and The Grenadines (SVG) and surrounding Caribbean islands have been exposed to the effects of this volcanic eruption.
