Phivolcs Gives Warning On Taal Volcano Island: "Delikado Na"

As such, Phivolcs gave a stern warning to everyone to not visit Taal Volcano Island. According to an article from ABS-CBN, Phivolcs Director Renato Solidum said:

Posibleng magkaroon ng steam-driven or phreatic eruption na delikado na sa tao kung sila ay nasa isla o malapit dito tulad ng shoreline sa tabi ng isla

Kung sakaling magkaroon ng steam-driven explosion, dahil walang tao (sa isla) mas ligtas sa kasalukuyan. Importante lang na walang lumabag”

Furthermore, Phivolcs noted how they need to monitor if the magma would breach the surface. Additionally, they said that if the magma does come out, they need to check if there could be a possible explosive or slow lava flow.

Currently, Phivolcs stated that it’s seeing a small volume. Because of this, they said that it could possibly have a bigger eruption compared to 2020.
