The La Soufrière volcano on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent erupted Friday after authorities ordered the mandatory emergency evacuations of thousands.

“La Soufriere has moved into an explosive state. Plumes up to eight kilometers,” the country’s National Emergency Management Organization tweeted Friday.

“Please leave the red zone immediately,” it urged just a few minutes later. “La Soufriere has erupted. Ash fall recorded as far as Argyle International Airport.”
