Activity at the volcano has been at a very low level during the reporting period. An episode of low-amplitude tremor, which followed the yesterday's earthquake swarm, ended at about 6:20 pm. Since then the only seismic activity has been a few rockfalls.
Low level cloud over the volcano has prevented any views of the summit so far this morning.
The volcano remains active and potentially dangerous. The lava dome is currently larger than it ever has been before, with a steep eastern face, so further pyroclastic flows are likely. People entering zone C must remain alert, listen to Radio Montserrat and be ready to leave at short notice. Only essential visits should be made. The ash levels in Plymouth are hazardous, and it is extremely important to wear an ash mask when there is ash in the air.
