The Volcanic Explanation

The Volcanic Explanation is published every morning from the Government of Montserrat's Media Centre and released via E mail and fax. It is a review in layman's terms of the activity at the Soufriere Hills Volcano over the past 24 hours and is written by Government's Information Service in conjunction with staff at the MVO. It is designed for Montserratians at home and abroad who might not understand the technical terms of the twice daily reports published by the MVO. Whilst not designed as a news release, the explanation can be used as a basis for news stories about the ongoing volcanic crisis in Montserrat.
