The La Soufriere volcano has been dormant for 40 years but erupted twice last Friday and could remain active for weeks.

ST Vincent residents who have not had their Covid jabs are banned from being evacuated onto cruise ships after two volcanic eruptions on the island.

A second explosion of the La Soufriere volcano was observed on Friday, six hours after it erupted for the first time in more than 40 years.

Earlier today, the island’s emergency management organisation Nemo tweeted to confirm the majority of the country was experiencing power cuts as a result of another explosion ripped through the island.

Their tweet read: ”Massive power outage following another explosive event at La Soufriere Volcano.

“Lightning, thunder and rumblings. Majority of the country out of power and covered in ash.”

As the crisis unfolded, cruise ship capains had volunteered to evacuate residents from the island.

But speaking at a press conference yesterday, St. Vincent Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves confirmed that only those who had been vaccinated against coronavirus would be allowed to onboard the ships.

He said: “The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship.”

Residents who have not been jabbed but are likely to have received it in time to join the cruise ship evacuations would not be allowed to board because of possible side effects such as “wooziness in the head”.

I might brave the volcano, but I would definitely want to escape the evil regime of St. Vincent Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves

I had to laugh at the idiocy of the vaccine requirement in order to
evacuate a corrupted island nation to save your life. What moronic leadership!
A vaccine you don’t need for a virus that hasn’t even been isolated and testing
that doesn’t even prove you have the virus.
