The level of seismic activity at the volcano has been at about the same as yesterday with another swarm of volcano-tectonic earthquakes being recorded. There were 20 earthquakes between 19:29 last night and 06:09 this morning. These were all located at shallow depths beneath the crater. Only four rockfall signals were recorded overnight. Low amplitude tremor on the Gages seismic station has been nearly continuous during the period.
The volcano is very cloudy this morning, and so no views of the crater have been possible.
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.
