View in eastern direction. The entire southern part of Montserrat had to be permanently evacuated after the reactivation of this volcano in 1995. Since then, lava domes have formed and collapsed. Numerous ash falls, pyroclastic flows, and lahars were recorded. Even though no more notable eruptions occurred between 2012 and 2019, sulfur dioxide emissions still indicate some low level of activity. Future eruptions cannot be ruled out.
