Volcanic activity has been at a lower level overnight. There have been regular but small pyroclastic flows and rockfalls throughout the night. A period of sustained rockfall and pyroclastic flow occurred between 12.45am and 1.15am.
Further pyroclastic flows are likely today. Due to the switch in the area of dome growth in the last few days, the northern side of the volcano is particularly dangerous. People should stay away from the ghauts on the northern and north-east side of the dome, and visits to the central corridor should be restricted to those that are absolutely essential. The Tar River and Long Ground areas are extremely dangerous, and should not be entered.
