Activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night was at about the same level as that which obtained yesterday. Seismicity is still dominated by small- to moderate-sized rockfall signals. A few long-period events were recorded and low-amplitude broadband tremor has been intermittent throughout the night.
Visibility during the early morning from the Observatory and Bramble Airport has been slightly overcast but brief view were obtained of the dome. No rockfalls were observed early today but vigorous steaming continues from several parts of the dome. The winds early today appears to be stronger and more constant than yesterday and is causing the volcanic plume to drift towards the west over Plymouth and surrounding areas.
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.
