Phivolcs Reports 2 Volcanic Earthquakes On Mayon Volcano, Kanlaon Volcano in the Last 24 Hours

PHIVOLCS – Government institution Phivolcs reported 2 volcanic Earthquakes by Mayon Volcano and Kanlaon Volcano in the last 24 hours.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) is an establishment who monitors every activity of the countries’ volcanoes, tsunamis, and earthquakes.

Phivolcs provide immediate information to the Filipinos for them to be aware and ready for whatever natural calamities that may happen such as a volcanic eruption.

Given that the Philippines labeled as the Pacific Ring of Fire, the country is an ideal setting for volcanoes to form.

There are several active volcanoes in the Philippines namely Mayon Volcano, Mount Kanlaon, Mount Bulusan, and Mt. Hibok-Hibok among others.

Settling near an active volcano is forbidden due to the dangers it may bring. If the location experiences volcanic earthquakes, it means the rocks beneath the volcano were breaking or moving because the magma is inserting on the rocks.
