The level of activity at the volcano has remained about the same overnight, with another swarm of volcano-tectonic and hybrid earthquakes. The swarm started just after six yesterday evening and finished at around 9:30pm last night. This activity continues the pattern established over the last two weeks. Very few hybrid and rockfall events were recorded during the night. The volcanic tremor which started at 6:30am early yesterday morning died out further during the night and is currently being recorded only on one seismic station.
The summit of the volcano is covered in cloud this morning but conditions are not as overcast as it has been during the past week.
The eastern side of dome is still steep and unstable, so that further pyroclastic flows could occur with little warning. Residents are therefore reminded to remain alert and responsible at all times. This includes traveling with an ash mask, spending the minimum possible time in the evacuated zone and being prepared to take recommended action when advised. The Tar River and upper Galway's areas are extremely dangerous, and should not be entered under any circumstances. Zone E, which includes Corkhill and the airport, remains safe at this time.
