Volcano Eruption Casestudy Montserrat Soufriere Hills

Volcano Eruption Casestudy Montserrat Soufriere Hills | Paper 1 Dynamic Planet | Scoop.it
Montserrats Soufriere Hills Volcano started to erupt in 1995. Pyroclastic flows have devastated most of the island but the population have rebuilt their lives in the islands safe zone.
Buile Hill Geography's insight:

You will need to be able to explain what the PRIMARY (on the day) effects of the eruption were e.g. deaths, injuries etc.. but also the SECONDARY (long term) effects e.g. loss of business, migration away from Montserrat

 

How did people respond? Emergency responses are IMMEDIATE responses and responses that are about rebuilding homes, jobs and the economy are LONG TERM responses.
