Dr. Erouscilla Joseph from the Trinidad based Seismic Research center, is urging Dominicans and visitors to refrain from visiting the Boiling Lake at this time, as it is currently undergoing some natural phenomenon. The lake is situated in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, and is 6.5 miles east of the city of Roseau.
According to Dr. Joseph, this is the eighth time that this natural cooling and draining of the Lake has occurred. Reports indicate that the cause for the natural phenomenon is still not well understood by professionals. However, it is possible that landslides into the lake may cause blockage to vents that are on the floor bed of the lake.
