Soufrière Hills volcano (Montserrat), activity update: lava dome growth, occasional ash fall
Observations suggest continued lava extrusion throughout the past week. Growth has occurred over a sector extending from the east around to the north, and an eastward-facing lobe has developed on the north east side of the dome.
Numerous small rockfalls have 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 wind coming from the south in contrast to the normal prevailing wind direction (from the east) during the past days, there has been ashfall over many parts of Montserrat; notably after a minor pyroclastic flow which occurred at 06:45 (local time) on 14 April.
