14 Apr St. Vincent Volcano Emergency Relief Drive
Miami Carnival, Joy’s Roti Delight, GenX Mas Band, Mirage Band and the South Florida Carnival Band Leaders Association and the community of South Florida join efforts to collect needed supplies for those impacted on the island of St. Vincent; as a result of the La Soufrière volcano which first erupted this past Friday, blanketing the island in a layer of ash and forcing some 20,000 people to evacuate their homes. Scientists say that they expect the eruptions to continue for days or even weeks. Neighboring islands Barbados and St Lucia will also continue to be affected by the volcanic ash.
