Volcanic activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night was at about the same level as that which obtained yesterday. Seismicity is currently dominated by small- to moderate-sized rockfall signals and low- to medium amplitude broadband tremor. A few long-period events were also recorded during the period. The level of broadband tremor has increased from about midnight last night. There was a sustained period of low- to medium-amplitude broadband tremor recorded on seismic stations close to the volcano between 02:59 and 06:17 on 25 May. Since this time the tremor has been intermittent.
Visibility during the early morning from the Observatory and Bramble Airport was very poor; low cloud cover and intermittent rainfall 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.
