St Vincent warns of water shortages as volcano eruptions continue

Al Jazeera, 14 Apr 2021
The Caribbean island of St Vincent has been rocked by another eruption as volcanic activity threatens crops, water and food supplies.
The La Soufriere volcano began spewing ash and gas clouds last week, but Monday's fresh eruption is thought to be the biggest yet.
Some 16,000 residents have been evacuated, with experts saying the explosions could continue for weeks.
Aid from neighbouring countries is slowly making its way to this island of 100,000 people, but the prime minister told Al Jazeera the road to recovery will be hard.
