Activity at the volcano has been at a low level overnight. A few small- to moderate-sized rockfall signals were the only seismic events recorded.
There is some cloud cover over the volcano this morning but conditions look good enough that clear views may be obtained later during the day. Clear conditions overnight allowed observation of incandescent material on several areas of the eastern side of the new dome. Small semi-continuous rockfalls were also observed from the north-east and south-eastern flanks of the dome. Most of these events were too small to generate a seismic signal.
The volcano remains in a highly dangerous condition. Pyroclastic flows and possibly another explosive eruption could start with little warning. All residents of Montserrat are urged to exercise caution while visiting the evacuated zone. The Tar River and Long Ground areas are extremely dangerous, and people entering these areas face a high risk of death.
