Piparo mud volcano acts up, homes, roads damaged

Piparo residents are on standby to evacuate their homes after what some residents say was an eruption at the mud volcano late Saturday. 

Residents posted to Facebook that the eruption took place at approximately 10:08pm.

However, in a post to his Facebook page, Princes Town MP Barry Padarath said "I can confirm that the Volcano did not erupt and no one is being evacuated up to 11:35 pm tonight."

There are reports of major cracks to the roadway and to homes near Pancho Trace.
