20,000 people fled by ship as a volcano that keeps erupting has turned their island into a “wasteland.”
The prime minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is appealing to the international community for help with the country’s recovery.
After reports say the eastern Caribbean nation was transformed into “a relative wasteland” from the erupting La Soufrière volcano.
20,000 people evacuated from the red zone after the volcano began unleashing eruptions.
The disaster has destroyed crops on the island of St. Vincent, where La Soufrière is located, and is leading to a water shortage.
Schools have been disrupted because the buildings are being used as shelters, and two of the island’s hospitals had to be evacuated.
The explosions forced an evacuation order and the closing of the country’s international airport, which remains shuttered due to the ongoing ash.
Scientists warn that the eruptions could go on yet for six months or more.
Officials said that the northern part of the country, where there were agricultural fields, fishing spots and tourism operations, is “all gone … It is now a relative wasteland. It’s desolation.”
UN officials described the impact of the volcanic explosions as “apocalyptic.”
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21, Revelation 6) foretell that there will be seismic activity of earthquakes and volcanoes signaling the world is nearing the end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
