Montserrat, am sorry

Earlier today while watching cricket I saw a "Breaking News" ticker on the bottom of the screen.Instantly,my attention was aroused and I read some very chilling news.Montserrat's Soufriere Hills volcano had belched gas and ashes causing the authorities to issue a directive that residents stay in doors.

Apparently,the dome has collapsed and nearby villages have been covered with ash fall of up to 2 to 3 inches.They say when your neighbour's house is on fire you must wet yours.Living in St Vincent and the Grenadines under the shadow of an active volcano the saying rings even truer.Therefore,this news fills me with dread especially since the images of Montserrat's destruction are still very fresh in my mind.

Anyway,take heart my Monsterrat brethren,take heart!

Comments:
Am sorry to hear about that! Hope it was just a wayward belch and nothing more is in the offing. Wicked win by the Windies though. Unfortunately I didn't see it but I followed the last few moments on Cricinfo. This win has special meaning to me too... you can read about it at my site...
 
I don't know how much more of this these poor people can take.
 
Oh wow, that's terrible. I hope everything works out for the best over there!
 
might be time for the population to abandon that country sad to say
 
JDid said it before I did. But it is really never easy to just abandon one's country.
 
I wish there was a volcano here in Jamaica. My curiosty begs to experience it. It would probably just be like that time I wished a hurricane would come to Jamaica so that I could see what it was like, and we got Ivan. Rest is history.
 
What an interesting wish to make for a country. Our small islands can't and arent equipped to handle these natural diasters.
I hope it's just a fading thing with that Volcano, because another major errution can cause a lot of havoc on the neighboring islands. I hope those people are prepared.
 
Kas,I often wish to experience an eruption too but only if am gauranteed that damage will be minimal
 
volcanos are rather messy things, I'm not too happy about them.
 
I must admit the volcano is caos ,but there are some good opportunities with volcanoes.
