Volcanic seismicity has remained at a similar level to that over the last few days. There was a hybrid swarm between 10:30 and 11:00 last night and another has started as this report is being written at 6:30 this morning. There have also been several small rockfalls overnight.
As the October 22nd dome continues to grow larger rockfalls and pyroclastic flows can be expected. There is also always the possibility of more explosions. Friths, Old Towne and Salem are not safe with the activity in its current state. Anyone remaining in these areas is strongly urged to move out of the exclusion zone. Everyone on the island is advised to remain alert and keep listening to Radio Montserrat, where any changes in the volcano's behaviour will be broadcast.
