After three weeks, they finally go back to their island. A number of residents of Saint Vincent had to leave their homes due to a large volcanic eruption. But now that the volcano is a little quieter, they want to see the damage to their homes.
Not everyone can just live in their own home again. Many houses are severely damaged by all the ash that has fallen on the roofs. Temporary shelters have been built for these people.
The roof of an elementary school has also collapsed. The teacher is afraid that her students will miss a lot of school because of this.
The inhabitants of the island hope to return to their normal lives as soon as possible. They also receive help from other countries. For example, tens of millions of euros have already been collected to restore houses and agricultural areas.
