Activity at the volcano has been at a very low level overnight. Apart from a single volcano-tectonic earthquake, a few small to moderate sized rockfall signals were the only other seismic signals recorded.
The visibility has been poor at first light, with the summit of the volcano obscured by low level cloud.
Despite the relatively low level of activity which has been experienced over the past week, the volcano is still quite dangerous. 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.
