The volcano has been quiet overnight, with a decrease in the level of activity since yesterday. Two small volcano-tectonic earthquakes occurred, and these were located at about 2 km beneath St Georges Hill. There were also six rockfall signals. The largest of these was at 06:07 this morning.
No views of the crater area have been possible due to low cloud.
The volcano remains in a highly dangerous condition. The October 1 dome continues to grow at a high rate, and further pyroclastic flows are likely. All residents of Montserrat are urged to exercise caution while visiting the evacuated zone and to become familiar with the new alert system and evacuation procedures. The Tar River and Long Ground areas are extremely dangerous, and people entering these areas face a high risk of death.
