Montserrat Volcano Observatory

Daily Report
Report for the period 6pm 17 May
to 6pm 18 May 1998

The level of volcanic activity has been low today.

Between 4 pm yesterday and 4 pm today, only 6 volcano-tectonic earthquakes were recorded by the seismograph networks.

Dust levels were low today at all sites, although conditions are becoming increasingly dry and dusty as a result of the low rainfall over the past week. A blue SO2 haze could be observed over Chances Peak.

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