Ash Falls 'Like Snow' on Barbados After Volcano Erupts on Saint Vincent

Ash fell on Barbados and plunged the island nation into darkness on April 10 as the fallout from a volcanic eruption on nearby Saint Vincent made its way east.

The sky emitted a dark reddish tone as day turned to night in some parts of Barbados on Saturday.

A thick plume from the La Soufriere volcano caused visibility to plummet, The Barbados Meteorological Service said": Ash continued to effect the island on Sunday, prompting a volcanic ash warning from the weather bureau.
