Lava extrusion at Soufriere Hills volcano on Montserrat continues. Over the past week, dome growth has occurred over a sector extending from the south-west around to the north-east. The eastward-facing lobe has continued to grow on the northeast side of the dome and a central spine was observed on 28 April. Small rockfalls and pyroclastic flows continued to fall from the active eastern flanks of the dome, adding to the talus in the upper reaches of the Tar River valley. Rockfall activity has been accompanied by minor ash venting. Thermal images taken on 27 April indicated some very hot (in excess of 400 degrees centigrade) areas on the eastern flanks of the dome.

As KVERT reports, strombolian-to-vulcanian activity continued at Karymsky during the past weeks. Satellite imagery showed ash plumes extending ~40-145 km E and SE of the volcano, and a large thermal anomaly at the volcano's crater. Karymsky remained at Concern Color Code Orange.

Over the past weeks, weak strombolian activity continued at Fuego volcano, ejecting incandescent material ~50-75 m high, and gas plumes to ~150-200 m above the volcano. Incandescent landslides traveled down the volcano's S and W flanks. Lava flowed ~400 m S towards Taniluyá ravine.

De uitbarsting op Augustine kan worden nadert zijn einde. Activiteit op Augustine daalde tot lage niveaus in 7-14 April, met seismiek daalt tot iets boven achtergrondniveaus, en afstortingen en lawines in frequentie in vergelijking met de vorige weken afnemen. Low-level stokte de activiteit bleef, bestaande uit langzaam effusie van lava tijdens de top van begeleid door kleine afstortingen en lawines op de flanken van de vulkaan. Satellietbeelden toonde een daling in overeenstemming met de verminderde activiteit hitte. Zwaveldioxide gas metingen bleek nog steeds omvangrijk van magmatische uitstoot die geassocieerd zijn kunnen met ontgassing van lava op de top van de vulkaan. Augustinus bleef op bezorgdheid kleur Code oranje. ...meer

Dome observations suggest continued lava extrusion throughout the reporting period. Growth has occurred over a sector extending from the east around to the north. The eastward-facing lobe has continued to grow on the northeast side of the dome and a whale-back feature was observed on 18 April. Numerous small rockfalls continued to fall from the active eastern flanks of the dome, adding to the talus in the upper reaches of the Tar River valley. Rockfall activity has been accompanied by minor ash venting. Due to the unusual wind conditions, the plume has predominantly been transported to the north and northwest shifting to east on 20 April. Due to this and frequent rockfall activity light ashfalls have occurred over much of the island.
