  • Description

    IN THE CENTRAL AZORES, ANOTHER EARTHQUAKE WAS FELT YESTERDAY (MONDAY) IN SAO JORGE ISLAND. THE ISLAND HAS BEEN EXPERIENCING A SERIES OF SHOCKS SINCE THE MIDDLE OF THE MONTH CAUSED BY AN UNDERWRITER VOLCANO.

    AT THE SAME TIME, THERE HAVE BEEN STORMS OVER THE ISLANDS SOAKING THE THOUSANDS OF HOMELESS VILLAGERS WHO ARE CAMPED OUT.

    MANY OTHER REFUGEES HAVE BEEN EVACUATED BY SHIP TO NEIGHBOURING ISLANDS DESPITE THE HEAVY SEAS RUNNING. OVER 1000 REFUGEES HAVE BEEN GOT OUT TO SAFETY THIS WAY.

    THE MAIN VILLAGE OF VELAS ON SAN JORGE ISLAND HAS BEEN ALMOST DESTROYED BY THE TREMORS. AND OTHER ISLANDS HAVE FELT THE TREMORS THOUGH TO A LESSER EXTENT.

    NO FISSURES HAVE BEEN FOUND ON THE ISLAND SO FAR, BUT ADDING TO THE DISCOMFORT OF THE REFUGEES HAS BEEN THE STRONG SMELL OF SULPHUR FUMES COMING FROM THE VOLCANO UNDER THE SEA.

    THERE HAVE BEEN NO REPORTS OF CASUALTIES.
