Seismic activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night has continued at about the same level seen during the last few days. Small hybrid earthquakes continue to occur at a rate of about one every two minutes. Several rockfalls also occurred. The largest of these were at 05:26 and 05:35 on 26 April.
Visibility during the early morning from the Observatory was poor.
Scientists at the MVO still view the situation at the Soufriere Hills Volcano with grave concern and continue to urge that visits to the evacuated zone be kept to a minimum. The Tar River, Long Ground and Whites areas are extremely dangerous, and should not be entered under any circumstances.
