An ash column rises above a fissure on the upper NW flank of La Soufrière de la Guadeloupe volcano in October 1976, with the capital city of Basse-Terre in the background. Intermmitent mild-to-moderate phreatic explosions took place from July 8, 1976, to March 1, 1977. Concern about the possibility of a larger eruption prompted the evacuation of the capital city of Basse-Terre from August to November 1976.
