Activity at the volcano during the night has remained at the same slightly less elevated level observed during the day time. Seismicity has been dominated by near-continuous low amplitude broadband tremor recorded at the nearest seismic stations and intermittent small to moderate sized rockfall signals.
Visibility during the early morning period has not been good because of low cloud cover but periodic clearances reveal that there is high emission of steam from the dome.
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.
