Montserrat Eruption Image
Mary Jo Penkala took this picture of a volcanic eruption as she flew over the island of Montserrat in the Caribbean six weeks ago.
‘We were so lucky to see the volcano in all its glory,’ said the hairdresser, 49.
She was on a Boeing 737 from Toronto to St Lucia when the pilot alerted passengers to the eruption.
Much of the island has been evacuated since the Soufriere Hills volcano began erupting in 1995.
“It was certainly an interesting start to our vacation.”
Experts say the island is safe to travel to.
