Activity at the Soufriere Hills volcano during the night has continued at about the same level as during the previous 12 hours. Small- to moderate-sized rockfall signals continue to dominate the seismic records. Intermittent low-amplitude broadband tremor and a few small long-period and hybrid events were also recorded. Continuous, moderate-amplitude, broadband tremor was recorded by the Gages seismic station from about 00:30 to about 06:00 this morning, probably indicative of increased steam emission in the Crater.
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.
