Montserrat: A Hidden Gem

My cousin and I visited our grandparents on an island called Montserrat. It's located in the West Indie islands of the Caribbean. Many people have never heard of this country because half the island was destroyed by the island's volcano. It's a beautiful place that you should all check out one day!

Here are some highlights from the trip. Let me know what you think!

Bramble Airport Buried Forever ~ MONTSERRAT ~ Exclusion Zone V ~ Drone Caribbean ~ WeBeYachting.com

Take a look at the lost W.H. Bramble airport destroyed by multiple volcano eruptions. We where not allowed to enter this part of the exclusion zone V. The footage seen here was shot from the safety zone of Jack Boy Hill.

W.H. Bramble Airport, also known as Blackburne Airport, was a small international airport on the east coast of the island of Montserrat, a British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. It was named after Montserrat Chief Minister William Henry Bramble.

The airport was destroyed in 1997 by an eruption of the nearby Soufriere Hills volcano, which obliterated much of the southern part of the island. For several years after the disaster, Montserrat was only accessible by helicopters or boats, until July 2005, when the new Gerald's Airport (now John A. Osborne Airport) was completed at the north end of the island. Bramble Airport had used the IATA airport code MNI, but this has now been transferred to the new airport.

Today only a few visible structures can be seen, The airport was is permanently damaged and is not repairable.

History
Montserrat is a small island, only 10 miles long by 7 miles wide, located in the Leeward Islands chain of the Lesser Antilles. It is only about 40 square miles in size, but due to recent volcanic activity it is actually increased in size.
Despite being diminutive, the location and topography of Montserrat proved to be attractive to early explorers. Christopher Columbus was first reported to have spotted the island in 1493 and he named it Santa Maria de Montserrat for a monastery in Catalonia, Spain.

Disaster Strikes
Montserrat has fallen victim to natural disasters multiple times in its history. In 1989 Hurricane Hugo would kill 21 people and destroy 90% of the island, causing an estimated $300M in damage. Despite the near total destruction of the island, they would receive aid and rebuild. In July of 1995, the previously-dormant Soufrière Hills volcano would erupt. It would send pyroclastic lava flows in all directions – including toward the town of Plymouth. By August of 1995 residents were evacuated when fragmented volcanic ash began to fall on the town; several months later the residents were allowed to return. On June 25th, 1997, another eruption would see the town almost completely overcome by pyroclastic surges. Nineteen people were killed, and once again Plymouth was evacuated. Soufrière Hills would continue to erupt into August, and eventually bury 80% of Plymouth.

Volcanic Exclusion Zone & The Future
The government has prohibited anyone from entering the area affected by the pyroclastic flows. Even homes that were not overcome by the flows were forced to be abandoned (see below). If the roads to get to these homes weren’t destroyed, the plumbing and electrical infrastructure was. The inability to rebuild in the area has left these otherwise sound structures to sit empty and rot. Recovery of Plymouth would be next-to impossible. The hard pyroclastic flow buries the town in a concrete-like rock. Sewage pipes are severed. There is very little grass or soil and the town has a moon-like surface covered in rock and large boulders. Rebuilding would require large-scale demolition not available to Montserrat; heavy equipment and explosives would be needed just to break up the rock, and the now-infertile scorched earth beneath offers little incentive to try. Even if the island had the capability to rebuild, the cost to do so would be astronomical, further reducing the chance that Plymouth Montserrat will ever return.

MONTSERRAT ~ Statue Rock ~ Best UAV Drone Caribbean ~ WeBeYachting.com

Montserrat is one incredibly beautiful mountainous Caribbean island, part of the Lesser Antilles chain and a British Overseas Territory. Sadly Its Soufrière Hills volcano first erupted in the 1990s, causing devastation to the southern part of the island which is now an exclusion zone. The north part of the island is largely unaffected, and has unique black sand beaches, coral reefs, breath taking cliffs, shoreline caves and a new city.

Visitors are politely told that Montserrat is not a volcano; it has a volcano and assured that the north part of the Island remains entirely safe, with the Soufrière Hills volcano is under round-the-clock monitoring by a MVO “Montserrat volcano observatory”. As is often the way in the aftermath of disaster, the close-knit community has forged stronger bonds than ever. Crime is a rarity, front doors and vehicles are unlocked, with the PEOPLE making the island magical. For first-time visitors to the Caribbean island of Montserrat, some of the local vocabulary evokes Geology 101. Words like “pyroclastic flow,” “seismic” and “dome collapse” pop up often in conversations with native islanders and longtime residents.

There is much to do in Montserrat other that visiting volcano devastation exclusion zones, there is epic nature hiking trails, black sand beaches, even a nice hike that will take you to the only white sand beach on the island. Drop an email to Sunny Lea, he is a wealth of local knowledge and is an amazing tour guide.

Stay tuned we are working on publishing our next video of parts of the exclusion zone.

This video was shot within regulation of Montserrat recreational use drone flying rules by responsible flying procedures with regards to locations and flight hight limits.

We hope you enjoyed our new video.

TOP 7 BEST PLACES TO VISIT IN CATALONIA

Catalonia has been in the news for a couple of months. First the overtourism protests, then the fight for independence. Since the political tensions have not yet been resolved the region’s tourism industry has felt the impact. The international flight bookings fell 17 percent since Oct 1. Many tourists are rebooking trips to other parts of Spain. The revenue from tourism in October is estimated to decrease by 15 percent. Nevertheless, Barcelona still remains one of the most popular destinations for international tourists. Catalonia offers much more than the fabulous city though. Discover the top places to visit in Catalonia.
