National Security Minister Stuart Young is advising people not to venture near the Piparo Mud Volcano.

Speaking at a press conference this afternoon, Young said the Volcano has not erupted as being reported.

However, he said one house was affected by some movement in the area.

"There was movement and that house has now been cordoned off. The authorities are there on the ground. I got an update from the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service just before ( press conference),” he said.

“They are monitoring the volcano and we are asking persons not go to see the volcano. At this stage there seems to be some activity and we do not want anyone injured,” Young stated.
