188 persons remain in shelters across the country

Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves has provided an update on the number of people who remain in shelters following the eruption of  La Soufriere Volcano.

Speaking on NBC’s Face to Face program yesterday the Prime Minister said the number of shelter occupants has significantly reduced.

Dr. Gonsalves said work is also continuing on the construction of houses in Orange Hill which are likely to take another month or so to complete.
