Montserrat Volcano Observatory

Daily Report
Report for the period 5 p.m. 10 June
to 5 p.m. 11 June 1998

The volcano has remained quiet today. The level of earthquake activity remained very low with 3 volcano-tectonic earthquakes and 2 rockfalls being recorded on the seismic network. In addition, between 2:50 a.m. and 3:20 a.m., a small mudflow signal was noted on the Lees Yard station.

Field workers in the St. Patrick's area today observed steam emanating from the pyroclastic flow deposits in the White River. This confirms that these deposits are still hot.

A GPS team re-established a monitoring site at Galway's Estate; it was thought that this site might have been destroyed during the Boxing Day eruption, but the original survey mark was re-discovered.

Dust levels were low at all sites today.

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.
