Activity at the volcano has been low overnight. There has been a return to the pattern of rockfalls and small pyroclastic flows dominating the seismic records. The largest signal of this type recorded over-night was at 5:00am today and was the result of material from the active area of the dome spilling over the Galway's Wall. Long-period earthquakes continue to occur above background levels with some of them triggering rockfalls. Other types of seismic activity have been at a low level.
Low cloud is currently obscuring the upper parts of the volcano.
Whilst dome growth continues at the Soufriere Hills volcano, it remains dangerous. Pyroclastic flows and associated surges could occur at any time and without warning in the Tar River or White River valleys, and people should stay well away from these areas. Rapid changes in the style of activity and areas affected are possible. Visitors to Zone C should thus stay alert and are reminded to stay well clear of ghauts in the event of heavy rain.
