Activity at the volcano has continued at about the same level as yesterday. A swarm of earthquakes which began at 02:43 this morning has continued up to the end of the reporting period. A few rockfall signals and some short periods of tremor have also been recorded throughout the night.
Clear views of the northern parts of the dome obtained this morning indicated that vigorous steaming continues from this area. No ash clouds were observed.
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.
