Satellite Captures Plume of Ash Rising From St Vincent's Soufriere Volcano

Satellite imagery captured a plume of ash and water vapor billowing from St Vincent’s La Soufriere volcano, which exploded again on the morning of April 13.

The National Emergency Management Organization of St Vincent and the Grenadines said the April 13 explosion was “not as energetic” as other recent activity, but warned that more eruptions were possible in the coming days.

This footage was captured by a Planet Lab satellite camera. According to the satellite-imaging company, ash from the volcano had spread 930 miles (1,500 kilometers) over the Atlantic Ocean. Credit: Planet Labs, Inc via Storyful
