Pardon the jerky style:
X,The map is available from me, on request.
As I type this the Governor, HE Debra Barnes- Jones, is on air by phone at ZJB, at 6:40 AM, the alarms having finally sounded 5 minutes ago, 6:35 AM.
She went off air, and after several minutes Dr Hards is finally on air,--> Explosion noise heard, 6:15, explosion, 30 k ft ash cloud
--> Pyroclastic [Flow, PF] activity, still in area evacuated over the past few days, furetner information to follow.
--> Where did surges go: Gages Valley, some in Tyres Ghaut, not very clear at moment.
--> Not seeing anything in Belham; note on PF activity. So far within guidelines (on the map, one assumes,[ linked].)
--> Morning show host, Basil Chambers, says sirens on saying "evacuate, evacuate" in Salem, Dr Hards indicates this relates to already designated areas.
--> Latest update: explosive event with gas and ash, PFs in Gages and Tyres not necessary over, stay put, don't panic.
Back to earlier:
She [Governor] indicates that Dr Hards, MVO head, is trying to get through to the radio station, and notes that a dome collapse is in progress.
Let us pray that it is a small one, and that nothing serious has happened.
Further updates will be posted as necessary. END
