Montserrat Update

Partial Dome Collapse

Just a quick note

The volcano here on Montserrat has partially collapsed. The event was about an hour long event. The pyroclastic flows went to the NE and E reaching the sea at the old airport and toward Trants. A few PF's went into the Belham as far as the edge of Cork Hill. But the collapse stayed to the east. The winds were in our favor so most of the inhabited areas did not get any ash. (Thank Goodness). If you look on the satellite the you can see the ash cloud moving in between Antigua and Guadalupe.
It will be a few days before we know how much came down but hopefully it will be enough to let those of us evacuated be able to go home.
