Daily Report
Report for the period 6 pm 13 January
to 6 pm 14 January 1998

Seismic activity at the volcano today has been relatively low. Between 16:00 yesterday and 16:00 today there were 4 hybrid earthquakes, 28 rockfall signals, 5 long-period earthquakes and 3 volcano-tectonic earthquakes. It has become difficult to discern any particular cyclicity in the seismicity.

Visibility was again good today and it could be seen that the rockfalls were continuing to occur in the upper part of the White River.

Dust levels at all of the monitoring stations across the island were low today.

People should remain alert and listen to Radio Montserrat for further information.
