Clouds of volcanic ash have be seen over Barbados on Saturday morning after a night of continuous eruptions by La Soufriere Volcano in St Vincent.
The ash has already began to affect life in Barbados as, at 8.30 am on Saturday, its Met Office issued a severe volcanic ash and small-craft warning.
The Barbados Government Information Service Facebook page also noted that Barbados’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr Kenneth George, has advised residents to stay indoors except for essential activities or medical emergencies.
In addition, around 10 am, Grantley Adams International Airport Inc closed and announced it would remain so until at least April 11 at 6 am.
Newsday will continue to provide updates.
