Agronomist and Former Agriculture Minister, Atherton Martin.
Meantime, In its investigative report, on September 17, 2020 at 4:30pm, Based on information supplied by the ODM, the Seismic Research Center (SRC) team determined that the recent activity in the Soufriere area is likely the result of a landslide in the area, followed by subsequent re-settling of the near surface hydrothermal activity with associated strong steam degassing.
The report states: There have been no associated volcanic earthquakes recorded in the area by the SRC network on the island. The SRC therefore believes that a change in volcanic activity has not contributed to this event. It is possible that the area may still be unstable and additional landslides may occur with continued steam degassing.
The ODM and SRC says it will continue to monitor the area. Public access to the area should be limited.
