Initial data thus far suggests there might be a disturbance at the Boiling lake resulting in the change of water levels there.
That's according to Research Volcanologist at the T&T based Seismic Research Centre of the UWI St Augustine Campus Dr Euroscillia Joseph.
Visitors to the Boiling Lake in Dominica have been urged to avoid visiting the area due to a change in water levels.
It has been reported that water levels have been changing in recent days, a phenomenon which has occurred several times since 1876.
Dr Joseph says she will be on island from today to monitor firsthand the situation at the Boiling Lake.
Joseph is still advising persons to stay away from the boiling lake.

Scientists have noted the changes in water levels at the Boiling Lake are not necessarily related to increased volcanic activity in the area or to geothermal exploration.
The last such occurrence was December 2004 - April 2015. Unconfirmed reports indicate the water at the lake has started to hear back up.
