Daily Report
Report for the period 6 p.m. 28 May
to 6 p.m. 29 May 1998

Volcanic activity has been at a low level over the past 24 hours. Between 4 p.m. yesterday and 4 p.m. today 13 volcano-tectonic earthquakes were recorded on the local seismic network. The sizes of these events are similar to those seen in the last few days. However there were also a number of small earthquakes that did not trigger the seismic network.

Dust levels were low at all sites today.

Work continued today on installation of the combined GPS and gravity site at Hermitage that has been set up by the University of Puerto Rico in collaboration with the MVO.

Residents are reminded that the volcano remains in a potentially active state, and that they should continue listening to Radio Montserrat in case there are sudden changes.
