The island’s emergency management office changed the alert level to red and said that after dark a cruise ship will arrive to evacuate those living near La Soufriere volcano.
It was not yet clear how many people would be evacuated, where the cruise ship would take them, or whether they would stay on board temporarily. The last time the volcano erupted was in 1979, and a previous eruption in 1902 killed about 1,600 people.
