Soufrière Hills Volcano

WI_la402.jpg

View from the Montserrat Volcano Observatory in southeastern direction. The entire southern part of Montserrat had to be permanently evacuated in the 1990s after the reactivation of this volcano. Even though no major eruptions have been recorded between 2012 and 2019, sulfur dioxide emissions still indicate some low level of activity. Future eruptions cannot be ruled out.
