The level of activity at the volcano overnight has remained very low, with only a few rockfall signals recorded. The largest event was a small pyroclastic flow signal, recorded at 2:10 am this morning. The number and size of rockfall signals reduced just after 4:00 am today and currently very few events are being recorded.
The dome is partially cloudy this morning and no clear views have been obtained thus far.
Despite the current low level of activity, the volcano remains active and potentially dangerous. The lava dome is currently larger than ever before and shows signs of becoming more active. There are several areas on the eastern and south eastern face which appear very unstable and further pyroclastic flows are likely. Explosive activity similar to the September 17 event and possibly larger is still a distinct possibility. 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.
