The volcano has been fairly quiet overnight, with a continuation of the moderate level of rockfall activity, indicating that the dome is still growing. The level of activity was higher between 7 pm and midnight last night. The only earthquakes have been small long-period earthquakes which have triggered rockfalls.
The top of the volcano is again in cloud this morning, and no observations of the dome have been possible.
Despite the continues low level of activity overnight, 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. This makes the Galways, Tar River and Long Ground areas extremely dangerous, and these areas 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.
