Today after awaking went on deck to see the morning view. As I rounded the corner to face the island I was awed by the beauty of a rainbow arced over the beautiful island of Montserrat. There are multiple volcanoes on this island the best known is the Soufriere Hills volcano. The eruptions began in 1995 and continue today. During the summer of 2003 the largest documented historic dome collapse for Montserrat occurred. The erupted material (pyroclastics) avalanched down the Tar River valley into the sea.
