Piparo residents are moving to roll out an emergency evacuation plan, in case the mud volcano erupts again. Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) officers and officials from the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Management (ODPM) met residents to discuss their plans on Wednesday.

Fire officials also attended the meeting which was held at the Piparo Community Centre. Princes Town MP Barry Padarath said residents were fearful that the volcano would blow, trapping them inside their homes.


“I want to see Crystal, God, I want to see my daughter, please!”.

That was the cry of 46-year-old mother Rosemarie Jagroop as she stood in front of the one-bedroom wooden structure in Gangaram Road where her daughter, 25-year-old Crystal Jagroop, was found dead on Tuesday.
