Activity at the Soufrière Hills Volcano is low.
The seismic network recorded five rockfalls, two volcano-tectonic earthquakes and one long-period earthquake this week.
Sulphur-dioxide measurements gave an average flux of 303 tonnes/day with a maximum of 393 and a minimum of 214 tonnes/day.
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. Tracks across the Belham valley are frequently destroyed or heavily modified by flash flooding or lahars, and caution should be exercised crossing the valley during and after rainfall.
The Hazard Level is 2. There is no access to Plymouth or the rest of Zone V. Zone C is open to pass-holders between 8 am and 4 pm every day: passes and an explanatory leaflet can be obtained from Salem police station. Maritime Zone W remains daytime transit only (boats may sail through the zone but must not stop).
