I've sai it before and i say it again, i love my brazilian sister Déa. She knows i love vulcanoes but this isn't an ordinary vulcano, is a vulcano from Montserrat, a British overseas territory located in the Caribbean Sea and a new territory in my collection.

"The Soufrière Hills volcano is an active complex stratovolcano with many lava domes forming its summit on the Caribbean island of Montserrat. After a long period of dormancy it became active in 1995, and has continued to erupt ever since. Its eruptions have rendered more than half of Montserrat uninhabitable, destroying the capital city, Plymouth, and causing widespread evacuations: about two thirds of the population left the island." - in: wikipedia
