Apart from this event there were 24 rockfall signals and 2 volcano-tectonic earthquakes recorded by the seismograph network.

Clear conditions this morning allowed further measurements to be made on the dome to assist with volume estimates.

Residents of Montserrat are advised to keep listening to ZJB Radio Montserrat for information in case of any changes in the state of the volcano.
