Just a curious (and rather sad) fact:

The eruption of La Soufrière in 1902 was a major factor in the high death toll of the Mount Pelée eruption.

When the news of the eruption came to Saint-Pierre, many people were reassured that nothing was going to happen, since the volcanic tension of Mount Pelée was relieved elsewhere (St. Vincent), and decided to stay in/move to the city.

Unfortunately, that wasn't the case: just hours after La Soufrière erupted, Mount Pelée did too... and within seconds, the city of Saint-Pierre (in the words of Theodore Roosevelt) "ceased to exist".

That is correct. I apologize for the mistake. I've corrected it, it would be displayed when QM reviews the changes.

Just out of curiosity, what is the difference between creole and patois? I thought of Jamaica and tried patois first, thinking it would accept it and when it didn't I tried Dutch, French, Spanish before getting right.

Did worse than expected. Many answers were obvious, but I dismissed them as being too obvious. And I can’t spell Antilles.

You would have to be a bigger Star Wars nerd than I am for that to help you remember how to spell "Antilles".
