Pyroclastic flows continued overnight, although the level of activity was lower than yesterday afternoon. The last pulse in activity ended at about 8 pm last night, and had a duration of eight hours: this is longer than most of the recent pulses. There has been a slight increase in activity in the last two hours, and further pyroclastic flows in Tar River, Tuitt's and Mosquito Ghaut are expected in the next few hours.
The volcano is cloudy this morning.
Hot pyroclastic flows and surges could travel even further than before in Mosquito and Tuitt's Ghaut at any time. The flows may occur with no warning, they move extremely fast and cannot be outrun. Zones A and B, which include Tuitt's, Bramble, Bethel, Spanish Point, Farms, Harris and Trants, are extremely dangerous and the authorities and MVO strongly advise that nobody should go into this area at all. The public are reminded that Bramble Airport remains operational, but is open only for essential travel purposes.
