Caption: Buried church. Steeple of a church buried by volcanic lava and ash, Plymouth, Montserrat. In the background is Soufriere Hills volcano, which has been erupting since 18 July 1995. In 1997 the town of Plymouth, Montserrat's capital, was completely destroyed by the volcano. The Soufriere Hills volcano's eruptions have left two thirds of the island uninhabitable. Several thousand people emigrated, while others moved to the northern part of the island, which is protected from the volcano by a range of low hills.
