MONTSERRAT VOLCANO OBSERVATORY (MV0) WEEKLY REPORT APRIL 27TH, 2019 TO MAY 3RD, 2019

The seismic network recorded 5 VT events this week.
Seven traverses were done using the boat traverse method to measure SO2 flux values on 02 May. The average flux measured was 132 t/d.

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 can be 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 1. There is no public access to Zone V, including Plymouth. Maritime Zones E and W are daytime transit only between sunrise and sunset (boats may sail through the zone but must not stop). Anyone who ignores these restrictions is liable to be prosecuted.
