The island of Montserrat is an overseas territory of the United Kingdom. The volcanic island covers an area of 102 square kilometres and is molded by three mountainous areas, the Silver Hills in the north, the Centre Hills, and the Soufrière Hills in the south. The Soufrière Hills volcano became active in 1995 and destroyed completely the capital city of Plymouth and 20 other settlements.

(not to be confused with La Soufrière on the island of Saint Vincent, or La Grande Soufrière on the island of Basse-Terre).
