Condello Travel is keeping a close eye on the situation in St. Vincent and the Grenadines – two popular locations that are adored by Vaughan’s full-service travel agency.

Condello Travel and its entire team are devastated by the news of on the devastating volcano that erupted with an explosion that shook the ground, spewed ash skyward and blanketed the island in a layer of fine volcanic rock on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent. The eruption Friday of La Soufrière — its first large one since 1979 — transformed the island’s lush towns and villages into gloomy, gray versions of themselves. A strong sulfur smell was unavoidable Saturday and ash covered everything, creeping into homes, cars and noses, and obscuring the sunshine that makes the island so popular with tourists.
