The level of activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night has been about the same as that observed during the day time. Several signals interpreted as representing small- to moderate-sized rockfalls were recorded, with the largest at 20:44 on 08 May and 00:02 on 09 May. Several episodes of low amplitude broadband tremor were also recorded at the closest seismic stations to the volcano. A few small long period and hybrid earthquakes were also recorded.
Visibility is still restricted by the low cloud cover that has been present over the volcano during the past four days.
The present level of activity at the Soufriere Hills Volcano continues to cause concern to the scientists. The MVO continues 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.
