Volcanoes that have been tranquilizing for decades are burning up in the west of the Caribbean, so that officials are issuing alerts in Martinica and San Vicente and the Granadinas are waiting for scientists to study the activity that, as it were, observed in years.
The most recent advertisement is the March issue at night for the volcano La Soufriere in San Vicente and the Granadinas, a chain of islands that houses more than 100,000 people. Authorities inform temples, gas emissions, formation of a new volcanic dome and changes in its crater layer.
The Caribbean Agency for Disaster Management Manifesto says scientists are watching a “crunchy eruption inside the crater, with gas and vapor visible” on March.
The governor warned women living near the volcano that they were preparing to evacuate if necessary, declaring a warning that meant the eruptions could occur within 24 hours of anticipation.
La Soufriere, located near the extreme north of the main island of San Vicente, entered the last eruption in 1979, and an earlier eruption in 1902 killed 1,600 people. It was a short time ago that the Mt Pelee in Martinica was stable and destroyed the city of Saint-Pierre, killing more than 30,000 people.
Mt. Pelee also wanted to be active in the principles of December and the officials of the French Caribbean territory will issue an alert yellow alert to the seismic activity of the mountain. It was the first alert of this type of emission since the volcano first erupted in 1932, according to The Associated Press Fabrice Fontaine, of the Vulcanology and Sismological Observatory of Martinica.
If the Oriental Caribbean is a large chain of active and extinct volcanoes, the volcanologist Erik Klemetti, of the Denison University in Ohio, said that the activity in Mt. Pelee and La Soufriere are not related.
“It’s not like a volcanic eruption to enter eruption and otros lo harán”, dijo. “Cae in the coincidence category”.
Suppose that the activity of evidence that the magma flows well and filters the surface, although aggregate that the scientists do not have a good compensation of what controls the speed with which it succeeds.
“The answers are not all satisfactory”, dijo. “It is the science that todavia is investigating”.
Klemetti says that the most active volcano in the last years in the Caribbean is the Soufriere Hills in Montserrat, which was in continuous eruption in 1995, destroying the capital of Plymouth and killing at least 19 people in 1997.
Decisive of the 19 volcanoes living in the oriental Caribbean are located in 11 islands, and the remaining ones are near the water near the island of Granada, including a lame Kick ‘Em Jenny who has been active for the last few years.
