MVO reported that during 22-29 August, observations suggested that the W side of the Soufrière Hills lava dome continued to grow. Lahars descended numerous river valleys during 25-27 August. Incandescence originating from a scar on lava dome created by the 28 July explosion, and then further expanded by a pyroclastic flow on 25 August, was observed on clear nights. Incandescence was also observed from an area N of the scar. Rockfalls descended the W side of the dome. The Hazard Level remained at 3.
