Taal Volcano Generates 2 Volcanic Earthquakes But Remains Under Alert Level 1
On Tuesday (June 16, 2020), the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology released the latest updates regarding Taal. The agency announced that the volcano remains under alert level 1.
Phivolcs reported that the Volcano generates two volcanic earthquakes with rock-fracturing processes under and around its edifice. The main crater’s vents have shown weak steaming or fumarolic activity.
Taal remains under alert level 1 (abnormal) because it could still produce volcanic earthquakes, minor ashfall, and sudden steam-driven or phreatic explosions. It is strongly recommended that the entry into the Taal’s Permanent Danger Zone must remain prohibited.
The residents living near the area are advised to take precautionary measures for possible ashfall, and minor earthquakes. Pilots were also advised to avoid flying near to the volcano’s crater, according to the volcanology agency.
