Soufriére Hills, Montserrat, West Indies

MVO reported that that during 11-18 March the lava dome at Soufrière Hills changed very little, based on visual observations on 12 March and other measurable parameters. The E side of the lava dome continued to erode, with material accumulating in the Tar River Valley. Fumarolic activity was concentrated on the NW and SE flanks and at the head of Gages Valley to the W. The Alert Level remained elevated at 4 (on a scale of 0-5).
