The level of seismic activity at the volcano has continued to be very low overnight, with only two small rockfall signals being recorded. Tremor on the Gages station has also been at a low level for most of the night. No other seismic signals have been recorded during the night.
The volcano is clear this morning although the dome complex is still covered by low cloud. Conditions look favourable for some clear views to be obtained during the day.
Despite the current low level of activity, the MVO scientists remain concerned about the possibility of a rapid escalation of volcanic activity during the next few days. Several more days of low activity will be required before we can advise that the alert level can be lowered again. We stress that the volcano is still in a very dangerous state and that all residents should follow the recommendations laid out in the alert procedures, and listen to Radio Montserrat.
