Lightning Flashes Illuminate Ash-Filled Sky in St Vincent

Lightning flashed as ash filled the air over St Vincent after multiple eruptions were reported at La Soufriere volcano on Friday, April 9.

St Vincent resident Javed Francis captured this footage and shared it on Twitter. He told Storyful the volcano couldn’t be felt from his location but that he has a “great view” of the smoke and ash plume.

Monitoring systems reported over 100 “lightning events” in the vicinity of the island by Friday evening. Credit: Javed Francis via Storyful
