Thunderstorm In Batangas, Netizen Mistakes It Came From Taal Volcano
THUNDERSTORM IN BATANGAS – A thunderstorm which occurred in Batangas made a netizen think that it came from Taal Volcano.
State weather bureau PAGASA released a thunderstorm advisory on Thursday that moderate to heavy rain showers with lightning and strong winds might occur on Metro Manila, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Cavite on that day.
According to PhilStar, some netizens speculated, however, that it might came from the Taal Volcano, which made its eruption earlier this year.
Like a tweet, just 16 hours ago as of this posting by a certain netizen, who made the aforementioned claim.
However, these claims were later debunked by other twitter users. One netizen further urged them to stop the fake news since the thunder was due to the heavy rain.
Based on the report, to further disprove that it came from the volcano, PHIVOLCS said that they did not report any volcanic activity that was associated with the thunderstorm on Thursday.
It did, however, that it recorded 10 volcanic earthquakes in Taal within the last 24 hour period that were linked to “rock-fracturing processes beneath and around the edifice.”
Alert Level 1 is still hoisted over Taal Volcano, where sudden steam-driven or phreatic explosions, volcanic earthquakes, minor ashfall, and lethal accumulations or expulsion of volcanic gas might occur and threaten areas within the island.
