The volcano has been relatively quiet overnight. There have been a few hybrid earthquakes and a number of small rockfall signals during the reporting period which are probably associated with continued growth of the new dome inside the explosion crater.
Larger rockfalls and pyroclastic flows associated with dome growth can now be expected on all flanks of the volcano. Also more explosions could occur at any time - whether individual events or another prolonged sequence. Friths, Old Towne and Salem are not considered to be safe with the activity in its current state.
There is still ash on the roads and drivers are reminded to be cautious and courteous. The wearing of ash masks is recommended in ashy conditions, especially when cleaning areas with very fine ash particles. Everyone is advised to keep listening to Radio Montserrat for information on the activity.
