Volcanic activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night continued at the same level as that observed during the day time. Seismicity continues to be dominated by small- to moderate-sized rockfall signals whose frequency and size have reduced since yesterday. A few small hybrid events continue to be recorded by the seismic stations closest to the volcano (Gages and Chances Peak). The sustained period of low amplitude broadband tremor recorded on the Gages seismic station since 08:17 yesterday reduced overnight and is now no longer present. One regional event was recorded by the seismograph network at about 03:07 this morning.
Visibility improved during the late evening yesterday and allowed brief views of the lower parts of the dome. Low cloud cover is again present this morning and continues to obscure the top of the volcano.
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.
