    Any people from Monsterrat on here???

    Watching a documentary of the devastating of the volcano which has rendered half the island uninhabitable. Just curious about life on that island.

    Wasn't that ages ago? I would also love to know what happened to them. Post the video link if you are watching online, please.

    I don't personally don't know anyone from Montserrat but when I was watching video about that volcano I remember thinking that they sounded a little bit like Jamaicans.

    With the Eruption in the mid 90's....many from the island were force to migrate, some to England, some to the neighboring sister islands Antigua & Barbuda, other British territories, Bahamas, U.S.V.I., and of course the states: Bronx, Brooklyn, Boston, and Florida.


    With a lot of construct and redevelopment going on, on the island...werd on the streets is that Immigration issues are arising. An eruption of Haitians & Guyanese are seeting up shop.g

    Shockingly, there is a tourist board....
    Montserrat Tourist Board
    Montserrat Tourist Board - Tourism Arrival Performance in 2012

    The volcano is still a threat and people were killed as recently as a few years ago because they were in an evacuated area.

    Apparently, they were all given UK citizenship so there must be thousands of them there. I would love to learn more about what happened to the people who stayed and to the people who fled.

    Honestly, I would DIE if something like this happened in Jamaica. I can't even fathom losing 2/3 of my homeland to volcanic ash and lava.

    I was watching the piece on TV. They showed plymouth which was the capital before the eruption in the mid 90s. The place just looked like another planet. then they traveled to the other half of the island and you wouldn't believe that you're on the same island.

    Tourist highlight is the black sand beaches and snorkling, besides the active volcano.......

    My grandfather is from Monsterrat, moved to Trinidad when the volcano erupted. I remember his accent was pretty close to that of a jamaican, but what surprised me the most is the amount of white (Irish) ancestry there. Ireland to Monsterrat to Trini, oh what a mix!

    You are correct, those Montserratians migrated there in the aftermath of a hurricane in the late 20's/early 30's.
