Activity at the volcano continues at a moderate level. Between 16:00 yesterday and 16:00 today there were 46 hybrid earthquakes, 1 long period earthquakes and 21 rockfall signals. There was a distinct hybrid swarm between 15.30 and 18.17 on the evening of the 2nd January. The rockfalls and hybrids tended to occur in short periods of higher activity approximately 6 to 8 hours apart, although the peaks in activity are not well defined.
Air quality at all monitoring stations across the island is good today. Cloud has again covered the top of the volcano all day and so there have been no good views of the crater formed by the Boxing Day collapse. People should remain alert and listen to Radio Montserrat for further information.
