The level of pyroclastic flow activity was slightly higher yesterday afternoon and evening, with several small pyroclastic flows on the north-eastern and eastern faces of the dome. Since 8 pm last night, the volcano has been quieter. There have been a few small long-period earthquakes.
The volcano is cloudy this morning, but it is likely that growth continues at the summit of the dome. This means that more pyroclastic flows are expected. There could be moderate to large pyroclastic flows in the Tar River and White River valleys with little warning. Small pyroclastic flows into the top of Tuitt's Ghaut are also likely, and this makes the northern slopes of the volcano dangerous. Visits to this area should be restricted to those that are strictly essential, and the central corridor should not be used as a route to the airport. Nobody should enter zones A and B, which include Tar River, Long Ground, Whites, St Patrick's and Gingoes.
