MVO Weekly Report for the Period 17 to 24 July 2015
Activity at the Soufrière Hills Volcano remains low.
The seismic network recorded five volcano-tectonic earthquakes this week.
Sulphur-dioxide measurements on six days during the reporting period gave an average flux of 231 tonnes/day with a maximum of 298 and a minimum of 147 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.
