Persons are still advised not to visit the boiling lake, until further notice is given by the proper authorities
Persons are still being advised to refrain from visiting the boiling lake until further notice is given, by the proper authorities. It has been reported that the Boiling Lake has now re-established its heating process after a recent abnormal cooling, and change in water levels at the lake.
According to an official release from the office of Disaster management, a visit to the lake last week, revealed that it was getting back to its normal state with the water level rising and boiling. However, the water is of a very dark gray colour and the fumes are still very potent.
The monitoring team noticed changes in the physical structure of the crater, where, either through erosion or soil slippage, the observation area is being undermined. Volcanologist Dr. Adam Stinton, from the Montserrat Volcano Observatory will arrive in Dominica today Tuesday on a 4-day visit, for evaluation and sampling at the lake and valley of desolation areas. Meantime, the monitoring team has advised that a barrier be erected around the observation area, and proper signage be displayed to ensure the safety of visitors to the Lake
