Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet has spoken to the Prime Minister of St. Vincent of the Grenadines, Dr. the Honourable Ralph Gonsalves, and indicated Saint Lucia’s readiness to assist in light of the latest developments with the ongoing eruption of the La Soufrière Volcano. 

Saint Lucia’s National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) has been in preparation mode for some time to assist St. Vincent and the Grenadines as well as areas which may be affected in Saint Lucia, in particular the south of the island. 

In light of the latest information and the evacuation order issued in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Prime Minister Honourable Allen Chastanet has instructed NEMO to be on high alert and to accelerate plans to assist. 

Prime Minister Chastanet called for continued calm, while indicating that citizens should be on full alert. The Government of Saint Lucia will continue to monitor the situation, stay in close contact with St. Vincent authorities and local developments will be communicated by the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO).

Prime Minister Chastanet called on all Saint Lucians to continue to keep our brothers and sisters in St. Vincent and the Grenadines in our thoughts and prayers.

The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) is an International Organisation dedicated to economic harmonisation and integration, protection of human and legal rights, and the encouragement of good governance among independent and non-independent countries in the Eastern Caribbean. The OECS came into being on June 18th 1981, when seven Eastern Caribbean countries signed a treaty agreeing to cooperate with each other while promoting unity and solidarity among its Members. The Treaty became known as the Treaty of Basseterre, so named in honour of the capital city of St. Kitts and Nevis where it was signed. The OECS today, currently has eleven members, spread across the Eastern Caribbean comprising Antigua and Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Martinique and Guadeloupe.
