  2. So 2020 isn’t over yet – La Soufrière St Vincent (St. Vincent and the Grenadine Islands) has started an eruption with tremors, strong gas emissions, changes to its crater lake. Moreover, a new baby lava dome is oozing out beside the big one from its last eruption in 1979. That eruption had started the same way, with a small dome, but then developed into a full-blown VEI 3 with up to 19 km ash plumes. The one in 1902 was even a VEI 4.

    Photo taken by the Senior Seismic Technician of the Soufrière Monitoring Unit on 29th December 2020 shows new lava dome in the central crater.
