Twenty-two years after its last activity, the Piparo mud volcano on Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean could erupt.
A strong explosion was reported on September 21 at 22:08 local, according to some sources. Fractures appeared on roads and houses in surrounding villages around 22:20, and some residents evacuate on their own, according to other sources.
In May 2019, geologists mention an increase in pressure under the volcano, raising fears of an eruption. The cycle of strong eruptions is 25-30 years old.
