The Scientific advisory Committee (SAC) has released its preliminary statement on the Soufriere Hills Volcano.

And it said that during the past year, the Soufriere Hills Volcano showed no significant changes in its behaviour

The statement comes after the SAC wrapped up its 19th meeting here this week.

The SAC says while the major part of the lava dome remains stable and rockfall activity continues to decline, the dome has still the potential to become unstable.

Meantime, The SAC says it still too early to say the eruption is over.

The committee spent significant time going over the hazards with respect to the volcano and tried to come up with a quantitative risk analysis.

One of the senior members of the committee, Professor Juergen Neueberg says there are still many aspects of the criteria still to be met before such a determination can be made.

The SAC also provides expert advice and oversee the operations of the Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO) to make sure it matches the level of risk with adequate management.

The next full meeting of the

SAC is in a year’s time.

An extended interview with members of the SAC will be broadcast on Radio Montserrat at 7:35 this evening.
