An ash plume rises above the summit of Soufrière volcano on Guadeloupe Island in October 1976 with the deserted streets of Basse-Terre, the island's capital city, in the foreground. The 72,000 inhabitants of Basse-Terre had been evacuated since August because of concern of larger eruptions. In November the evacuation was ended.
