Thousands of people on the eastern Caribbean island of St Vincent are being evacuated over the threat of an imminent volcanic eruption.

Government officials tweeted that the dome of the La Soufriere volcano located on the island's northern region could be seen glowing by nightfall following days of seismic activity.

There has been another "explosive event" at a volcano on the Caribbean island of St Vincent, with power outages and water supplies cut off.

The La Soufrière volcano first erupted on Friday, blanketing the island in a layer of ash and forcing some 16,000 people to evacuate their homes.

Volcanic eruptions on St Vincent have blanketed the Caribbean island in ash, forcing 16,000 residents from their homes and leaving many without power or running water.

Many of those there say they do not know when or if they will be able to return home.

Shellisa Nanton, 26, lives with her family in the red zone - the areas at highest risk - in Georgetown. She told the BBC they had just hours to leave before La Soufriere erupted on Friday.
