Volcanic activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night has continued at about the same level as observed during the day time. Seismicity continues to be dominated by near-continuous low amplitude broadband tremor recorded at the nearest seismic stations. Several rockfall signals and long period earthquakes were also recorded.
An absence of cloud cover on the volcano during the night enabled strong glowing of the dome to be viewed from various areas around the island. Visibility during the early morning period from Bramble Airport and the Observatory has been fair. There is continuous steam emission from the dome and intermittent rockfalls from the eastern, northeastern and northern sectors of the dome.
The MVO still views the situation at the Soufriere Hills Volcano with grave concern and the scientists 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.
