4 quakes recorded from Taal Volcano area

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has recorded at least four volcanic quakes in the Taal Volcano area in the past 24 hours.

The latest Phivolcs bulletin on Taal also showed the volcano emitted steam from the main crater, although this was described as “weak.”

“Taal Volcano Network recorded four volcanic earthquakes. Emission of steam-laden plumes from fumarolic activity at main crater vents was weak,” the agency said.

With the four earthquakes recorded, Phivolcs has maintained Alert Level 1 (Abnormal) over the Taal Volcano area, which means sudden explosions from the volcano are not discounted.

“DOST (Department of Science and Technology)-Phivolcs reminds the public that at Alert Level 1, sudden steam-driven or phreatic explosions, volcanic earthquakes, minor ashfall, and lethal accumulations or expulsions of volcanic gas can occur and threaten areas within the Taal Volcano Island,” it said in its latest volcano bulletin on Taal.

“Local government units are advised to continuously assess previously evacuated barangays around Taal Lake for damages and road accessibilities and to strengthen preparedness, contingency, and communication measures in case of renewed unrest,” it added.

Phivolcs also warned people not to venture to the volcano area. CURRENTPH
