Activity at the volcano has been at a higher level than yesterday although the overall activity level is still low compared with a few days ago. Three volcano-tectonic earthquakes and several rockfall signals were recorded during the night. The largest rockfall occurred at 00:17 early this morning. There were two periods of high amplitude tremor on the Gages seismic station. The first occurred between 17:00 and 19:45 last night and the second began at 05:42 this morning and is continuing. This tremor is thought to be due to steam and water movement close to Gages.
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 always to remain alert, and listen to Radio Montserrat.
