Seismic activity has been at a low level overnight but regular rockfalls and small pyroclastic flows have occurred, particularly on the northern slopes of the dome. Rockfall activity has increased slightly since about 3am and several ash clouds generated in the early hours of the morning were seen blowing to the west of the volcano.
The volcano is covered by thin cloud this morning.
The northern flanks of the volcano are very dangerous and pyroclastic flows could travel down Tuitt's Ghaut and Mosquito Ghaut with little warning. There could also be moderate to large pyroclastic flows in the Tar River and White River valleys. 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.
