Activity at the Soufrière Hills Volcano is low.
There was one rockfall and two volcano tectonic earthquakes recorded by the seismic network this week.
The average rate of sulphur dioxide emission for seven days this week was 310 tonnes per day, with a minimum of 186 and maximum of 509 tonnes per day. However as these values are from one station only it is likely that they are underestimates.
Partial glimpses of the lava dome this week showed no changes.
Pyroclastic flows can occur at any time without warning on any side of the volcano, including Gages from where they can travel rapidly into Plymouth. Lahars (mudflows) will continue to be a hazard. Tracks across the Belham valley can be destroyed or heavily modified by lahars, and caution should be exercised crossing the valley during and after rainfall.
The Hazard Level is 2. There is daytime access (8:00 am to 4:00 pm) to Zone C. Maritime zone W remains daytime transit only (boats may sail through the zone but must not stop).
