Ash blown across over 100 miles of ocean from the La Soufriere volcano on St Vincent plunged Barbados into darkness on Saturday, April 10.

This drone footage, shot on Saturday afternoon, shows the sky above northwest Barbados glowing in a dark reddish tone.

The country’s meteorological service reported that a “thick plume of volcanic ash” was impacting the island on April 10, and forecast additional ash would traverse the island that afternoon. Credit: Alec Drayton via Storyful
