The level of volcanic activity has been quite low overnight but there have been regular rockfalls and several small pyroclastic flows. It is likely that there will be more pyroclastic flows today and ash generated by these flows may fall in the safe zone.
The top of the volcano is again in cloud this morning.
The area of dome growth appears to have increased during the last 36 hours or so with activity on the southeastern to northern flanks of the dome. Significant pyroclastic flows may occur in the Tar River and White River valleys with little warning and the probability of pyroclastic flows breaking into Mosquito, Tuitt's and White's Ghauts remains high. The Galways, Tar River and Long Ground areas are extremely dangerous, and should not be entered. Visits to the central corridor should be restricted to those that are absolutely essential, and it should not be used as a route to the airport. The siren will be tested today between 3 and 6pm.
