Activity at the volcano has been at a very low level overnight. There were no volcano-tectonic earthquakes, and the only recorded signal was one small rockfall. Between 19:00 and 20:00 last night, a period of strong tremor was recorded by the Gages seismic station. This tremor is thought to be due to steam and water movement close to Gages, and the high level may have been due to the recent rains.
The volcano is overcast this morning and no views of the crater have been possible.
Despite the low level of volcanic activity during the past 24 hours, MVO scientists remain concerned about the status of the volcano. There is still a possibility of a rapid escalation of volcanic activity during the next few days and all residents are urged to always remain alert, and listen to Radio Montserrat.
