Do montserrat have a volcano?
Yes it has two volacnoes. Standing lower then 3,000 feet but around that, i think they are now 3,000 feet because of all the eruptions... :D

Montserrat is an island in the Caribbean. The island has a volcanicarea called Chances Peak found in the south of Soufriere Hillsisland.
Montserrat has 3 volcanoes: Silver Hills Centre Hills Soufriere Hills two (Silver Hills and Centre Hills) are not active but Soufriere Hills has been recently active.
\n. \nit was dormant for 400 years before it erupted.
because the rub and create friction, friction makes heat and the heat slowly melts the plates which creates magma tjhe magma slowly rises and builds up pressure under the plat…es.
The volcano montserrat erupted because of various reasons. Humans did not contribute towards the eruption of the volcano, however they were effected by the eruption greatly. T…he main reason that the volcano erupted due to it lying on a destructive plate boundary, where the heavier north American plate, was sinking underneath the lighter Caribbean plate causing a subduction zone. Due to the sinking of the north American plate into the Mantle, magma started to rise which caused the volcano to erupt. The volcano also had to 'clear its throat' and let off a lot of gas ect.
It Erupted On The Birthday Of Micheal Willaboobdy , 2nd May , everyone who is born on that day is very special ! x
The volcanos are on the south of the island. Yellow Stone National Park, Wyoming U.S.A
The Montserrat volcano eruption took place in February 11th 2010
No. Montserrat is a stratovolcano.
evidently not since last month
Well its on a collision plate. Subduction occured and well: Montserrat was formed when subduction occurred underneath the sea and magma was pushed to the surface. The lava c…ooled and became a hard rock. The volcano kept erupting and eventually it built up to the point where you the land reached the surface of the sea. Once the island was formed the volcano kept erupting so that a mountain shaped rock formed. RK
Pretty much everyone living in the south side of Montserrat was affected by the eruption, and a couple years later so was the North. A lot of the South sides previous populati…on decided to move up to the North part of Montserrat. They lost tourism, the capital (Plymouth), the airport and the main harbour;so all in all, everyone living there would be affected in the end.
No. The term compostie volcano describes a kind of volcano, not akind of volcanic eruption. The SoufriÃ¨re Hills on Montserrat isindeed a composite volcano, however, whether… it is erupting or not.
Yes, of what I know the only one is the Soufriere Hills Volcano.
A very long time ago, An undersea volcano erupted from the ocean's floor. Spewing its lava (molten rock), the volcano built an undersea mountain that grew higher and higher, e…ventually growing above the surface of the sea. This was the beginning of the island we now call "Montserrat". Eventually the volcano calmed down and life colonized, Every since then there has always been moving magma under the Ground and about 500 years ago another Volcano erupted making the rest of the Island. About 80 years ago they started having earthquakes, these were not caused by what we think normal quakes are caused from. These were cause from Magma being forced into different areas of the Island (still underground) The quakes started getting worse when magma erupts like this and does not show it is called a phreatic eruption, I guess to answer your question The Island of Montserrat was created by a Volcano and there has always been one there just not above ground until sometime in the 1990's, I think 1996. I hope that helps answer your question
