:eek: That's an impressive volcanic cloud it's larger than the Lesser Antilles, it's not only wide but it must be very tall based on IR images.

Partial Dome Collapse
By Tina Bretton <tbretton59 at msn.com>

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.

Ok Gusty.
No ash in my location.The cloud moves more to the ESe than SSe.
The north part of Grande Terre received a lot of ash from this eruption.

Yeah you're right, hopefully Basse-Terre seems much more out of the major and "strong" amount of ash, good news for you my friend! :)

Whereas this ash activity should continue to pose troubles for the planes during the next few hours as the airport of Le Raizet is close since 530 pm.
