Devil’s Woodyard mud volcano awakens after 23 years, Trinidad and Tobago

– February 13, 2018

A new volcanic activity is taking place at Devil’s Woodyard mud volcano in Trinidad and Tobago. The last eruption of this volcano took place in 1995, killing 1 person and leaving 31 families homeless.

The first set of eruptions started at approximately 22:00 UTC on February 12. Another eruption took place at 00:20 UTC on February 13, followed by another at 04:52 UTC.

The volcano ejected thick volcanic mud and covered a large area, causing cracks in the ground and damage to concrete footpaths around the volcano. At the time, mud is extending some 45 m (150 feet) in each direction of the crater.
