The level of seismic activity during the night has remained almost the same as during the day time. The seismicity continues to be dominated by the occurrence of small, hybrid earthquakes at shallow depths beneath the volcano at a rate of about 2 to 3 per minute. Several rockfalls and a few small explosions occurred, with the largest explosion being recorded at 21:13 on 14 April 1995.
The scientists at the MVO still remain gravely concerned about the current level of activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano. We continue to urge people still living in the evacuated zone to leave immediately. Visits to the evacuated zone should be restricted to those that are absolutely essential. The Tar River, Long Ground and Whites areas are now extremely dangerous, and should not be entered under any circumstances.
