Rumblings continue in Piparo

On Thursday night, residents of the quiet rural village heard loud noises coming from the volcano and upon checking the next day saw mud spewing from the mouth of the volcanoes. There was also a strong odour of gas which according to villagers overwhelmed the atmosphere.

Back in February 1997, there was an eruption which caused several homes to be buried under the muddy ash. Families living in close proximity to the volcano had to be relocated.

One resident told Newsday yesterday: “Nothing has changed, we are still hearing the rumblings. All we can say is that the volcanoes continue to be very active at this time.” Efforts yesterday to reach a representative of Geological Society of Trinidad and Tobago for comment proved futile.
