The sinkhole at North West Bluff on the north coast of Montserrat has grown larger.
According to the Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO), the hole was examined from the helicopter on 9 August. It is now approximately ten metres across, compared to five metres in February 2016.
“The enlargement appears to be restricted to the upper part of the sinkhole which indicates that the collapse has been from the surface and not from below. The public is reminded to avoid this area.”
