La Soufriere volcano eruption: Before and after satellite images show devastation in St. Vincent

After decades of inactivity, La Soufriere volcano first erupted on Friday and continued erupting for five days now, spewing dark clouds of ash some 10 km (6 miles) into the air and prompting an evacuation of residents living nearby.

Satellite imagery shot before and after the volcano eruption on St. Vincent showed ash covering the nearby communities, that destroyed crops, contaminated water and devastated infrastructure.

Meteorologist Ross Hull discusses the impact of the volcano as satellite images show. Officials have warned it could continue to be active for months.
