Activity at the volcano has reduced overnight and is currently at a low level. Five volcano-tectonic earthquakes and several small rockfall signals have been recorded during the reporting period. Three of the VT events were of moderate size. The largest rockfall signals occurred at 20:32 on the 14th and 04:14 on the 15th. Only minor amounts of low amplitude tremor has been recorded on the Gages seismograph station.
The volcano is overcast this morning and no views of the crater have been possible. However it has been possible to discern a steam plume coming from the dome.
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.
