  • Soufriere Hills is a cone volcano, on the Caribbean island of Montserrat have done great damage in recent years. After a long idle period volcano woke up to the deed in 1995 and buried the southern part of the island and the capital, Plymouth, in ash. In the summer of 1997 came another large outbreak, where, among other things, the island's airport was completely smashed by pyroclastic flows. Since the outbreaks are starting again, approximately 7000 of the island's original inhabitants fled the island to 11000 safer places. Latest outbreak: 2012. Height above sea level: 915 m Relative height: 915 m. volcano's name means sulphur output. It is situated in the destructive plate margins.
