The same pattern of decline in seismic activity continues at the La Soufriere volcano in St Vincent and the Grenadines where fewer earthquakes are being recorded.
Lead Scientist at the La Soufriere Monitoring Unit Lloyd Lynch in his update today on ‘Eyeing La Soufriere’ says the team is seeing less than 10 earthquakes per day which is less than previous weeks.
However, it is still not down to the level of activity the monitoring team is looking for as yet, for instance, two earthquakes per week.
Lynch says gas measurements taken on June 10 showed an SO2 flux of 290 tonnes per day which is less than the flux from the previous measurement on June 3, which was over 400 tonnes per day.
“Yes, we are continuing to see some sort of simmering of the volcanic activity,” says Lynch.
He notes a helicopter recently conducted an overpass and there is still no dome at La Soufriere.
The alert level remains at Orange.
