Activity at the Soufrière Hills Volcano has remained low but has shown measurable increase in the level of unrest in the last year

The Montserrat Volcano Observatory reports that activity at the Soufrière Hills Volcano has remained low but has shown measurable increase in the level of unrest in the last year.

In particular, the volcano has produced higher rates of volcano-tectonic earthquakes since around 2019, and these have further increased in number over the last 12 months.

Monitoring of ground deformation indicates a slow but continuous inflation over the island. This established long-term trend of inflation is consistent with that observed over the previous 13 years
