Activity at the volcano was again at a low level overnight. Only one event triggered the short period seismic network and that was a very small long period event. The level of seismicity is currently at its lowest level for some considerable time although past experience suggests that it may not stay at this low level for very long.
The volcano is overcast this morning and no views of the crater have been possible.
MVO scientists remind everyone that the volcano is still in a very dangerous state, despite the low level of activity. Further explosive activity is possible, and there may not be much warning before it starts. All residents should follow the recommendations in the alert procedures, and stay away from the Tar River and Long Ground areas in particular, where there is a high risk of death.
