As a geologist, I can assure you that the volcano does not care one whit what humans say about the safety on any part of the island. If the volcano could talk it would likely say - "Caveat Emptor".

It was the island of Martinique where the the volcano erupted, killing many people in a town near the north end of the island while sparing a prisoner in a local jail.

Last night, National Geographic aired a program about the Monserrat Volcano and how it was affecting the people and economy of the island nation. It was filmed in mid 1999, and ended with a message that as of mid 2000 the Volcano was still active.

It did mention that the northern part of the island was still unaffected, however, as more folks move from the rest of the island to the north, one might reasonably expect there will be problems that come with over crowding.

Also, although the northern part of the island has been spared of volcanic ash and pyroclastic flows, one should not bet on it never happening. We are not only talking about potential loss of property and/or livelihood, we are also talking about potrential loss of life. :^(

As I said in earlier posts - Caveat Emptor.
