Volcanic activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night continued at the same low level observed during yesterday. Seismicity is now dominated by small rockfall signals and broadband tremor. Repetitive hybrid events which began to appear on the Chances Peak seismograph since 03:19 on 19 May, are now minute events which are occurring at a rate of 1-2 events per minute. Low amplitude broadband tremor on the Gages seismic station increased slightly in amplitude at about 05:34 this morning.
Visibility during the early morning from the Observatory and Bramble Airport was poor; low cloud cover continue 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.
