Montserrat Volcano Observatory

School children are instructed on volcanic risks. The entire southern part of Montserrat had to be permanently evacuated in the 1990s after the reactivation of the Soufrière Hills Volcano (in the background). 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.
