    I am a Barbadian who was 9 years old when this volcano erupted. I remember it like yesterday....hearing my older relatives talk about something hitting them in the face outside and I went outside and felt the small particles beating against my face in the way their described it. I remember being afraid to sleep in fear of an earth quake triggering a tidal wave as it was explained then. Today I know it’s a tsunami. We heard that the volcano in st vincent had erupted. That ash was heaped in our patio the next morning. That volcanic ash reached us in barbados. That’s just amazing. Think rumor has it it helped our crops that year to flourish. 👍🏾

    The legacy of my ‘maternal’ great-grandfather - George Edwards {better known as Brother Eddie} born in 1875 or 1874.

    Brother Eddie rescued and took lots of people to safety in his fishing boat at the 1902 La Soufrière Volcano eruption. He donated land for the Save Soul, Gospel Hall Church. He helped in the establishment of the Campden Park Agricultural and Experimental station. He was a farmer, a fisherman, a medicine man (Herbalist), a massage therapist, and a preacher. People used to travel from different parts of St. Vincent and other Islands to visit Brother Eddie for medical help. Even people that medical doctors couldn’t treat and cure, Brother Eddie treated and cured them with his herbal medicines. He was helpful to the people who were from Wallilabou, too. At least 68 families from Wallilabou were relocated to Campden Park. Some of the people were relocated to Claire Valley.

    Brother Eddie had members of his family who resided in Claire Valley. He planted the coconut palms in Lowmans Bay. I think that he went to Panama to work "diggers" during the construction of the Panama canal. He was an all-rounder in the things he did.

    Brother Eddie died in 1960. People came from all over St. Vincent, and abroad for his funeral. It was the biggest turn out ever in Campden Park for a funeral.

You'll know the truth, all stand before God eventually, He who formed everything. Now, go away, boring atheist, with your faith in stories.

    Its december 31, 2020. Soufriere is acting up again ....
    In 1979, my father Eardlie Allen ( Born in Colonarie, SVG but living and working in the island of Curaçao for over 35 years at the time) organized cargo with clothes and food with the Curaçao Red Cross and joined the Red Cross in a flight to Sint Vincent.
    The Curaçao community ( with a few thousand SVG born countrymen) helped fantastic.
    My dad has passed away 12 years ago ( 2008) but if he were alive, he would have done his best to help again considering the rumble the vulcano is producing now in the last days of 2020 - Michael Allen from the island of Curaçao

      @Maria Dowler It is. It's called an effusive eruption. Its not a violent eruption like what people think. Its just lava flowing onto the surface which is causing a new dome.
