Volcanic activity at the Soufriere Hill Volcano has continued at the same level as yesterday. Rockfalls signals which vary in size from small to moderate have been recorded on seismic stations closest to the volcano. The largest rockfall signal was recorded at 06:36 on 7 June; very poor visibility prevented observation of any ash clouds that may have been associated with this event. Intermittent periods of low-amplitude broadband tremor has been recorded throughout the night. This tremor is probably related to steaming from the volcano and is only recorded on the Gages and Chances Peak seismic stations. Few long period earthquakes and no Vts or hybrid events occurred during the night.
The summit of the volcano has been covered during the early morning by very low cloud cover and no views were possible.
Scientists at the Montserrat Volcano Observatory view the situation at the Soufriere Hills Volcano with grave concern. Visits to the evacuated zone should be kept to a minimum. The Tar River, Long Ground and Whites areas are extremely dangerous due to the frequent occurrence of pyroclastic flows in the Tar River valley. People should not enter these areas under any circumstances. If they do, they put themselves at direct risk of serious injury or death.
