Phivolcs Releases Latest Updates About Taal Volcano
The seismology agency Phivolcs has recorded 28 volcanic earthquake and 130 volcanic tremor episodes at Taal Volcano.
On Saturday (February 27, 2021), the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology released the latest updates regarding the current condition of Taal Volcano during the past 24 hours.
Phivolcs observed 28 volcanic earthquakes and 130 volcanic tremor episodes that last for one to five minutes. Taal Volcano remains under Alert Level 1, which indicates an abnormal state due to irregularities.
The agency also recorded 74.6 degrees Celsius and pH of 1.59 from the Main Crater Lake of Taal Volcano last February 12 and 18, 2021.
“Ground deformation parameters from continuous electronic tilt on Volcano Island record a slight deflation around the Main Crater since October 2020 but overall, very slow and steady inflation of the Taal region has been recorded by continuous GPS data after the eruption,” Phivolcs said.
The volcanology bureau prohibited the public to enter the permanent danger zone due to possible sudden steam-driven or phreatic explosions, volcanic earthquakes, minor ashfall, and lethal accumulations or expulsions of volcanic gas.
