A short-occupation GPS station was set up at Lee's Yard today to obtain deformation measurements at that location.

The spine on the top of the dome was briefly sighted today by a field team at Flemings, and appears unchanged.

Residents are reminded that the volcano remains in an active state, and that they should continue listening to Radio Montserrat in case the present quiet situation at the volcano changes suddenly.
