The level of activity during the night was generally similar to that observed during the previous 24 hours. Signals indicative of small rock avalanches from the sides of the growing dome continue to dominate the records. Intermittent low-amplitude broadband tremor and a few small long-period and hybrid events were also recorded. A moderate-amplitude, continuous, broadband signal recorded by the Gages seismic station for about 30 minutes from 20:31 on 13 July was most probably due to increased runoff in Fort Ghaut as a result of heavy rainfall.
The volcano continued to be obscured by clouds during the later part of yesterday and today morning.
Dome growth is continuing and therefore the threats posed by the Soufriere Hills Volcano continue at the same or a greater level as over the past several months. The Tar River and Long Ground areas to the east and the upper Fort Ghaut, Gages Village and Upper Amersham areas to the west are still extremely hazardous. People should not enter these areas under any circumstances because they put themselves and others at direct risk of very serious injury or death. People are urged to keep visits to the evacuated zone to a minimum.
