Volcanic activity has remained at a low level overnight. There have been a few moderate rockfalls detected by the seismic network, but no earthquakes.
The dome is very clear this morning, and producing a small steam plume, with minor amounts of ash, that is being blown to the south-west.
Although the level of volcanic activity is low, observations of the dome yesterday show that a major collapse of the southern part of the dome could happen with little warning. The alert level remains at orange, and so there should be no visits to zones A and B and only limited, short visits to zone C. Daytime occupation only is permitted in zone D. People should listen for further updates of the situation from the MVO. For the time being people are advised to remain vigilant and to always wear an ash mask in dusty conditions. The Tar River and White River valleys are extremely dangerous, and should not be entered at any time.
