Most of the volcanic peaks on the islands are dormant except one known as Kick 'em Jenny. The volcanic eruptions earlier created many crater lakes of which the Grand Etang is the largest. The climate is mostly tropical and is frequented by the north east trade winds brought in by the sea. The high rate of precipitation causes many rivers to flood the central plains in the islands.
