Phivolcs Releases Latest Update on Taal Volcano for Tuesday (July 6)

The state seismology bureau Phivolcs recorded at least 39 volcanic quakes at Taal Volcano as it remains under Alert Level 3.

On Tuesday (July 6, 2021), the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology released the latest updates about Taal Volcano. The agency reported that the volcano remains under Alert Level 3.

Phivolcs placed the volcano from alert level 2 to alert level 3 five days ago after Taal generates phreatomagmatic eruption. Alert level 3 indicates magma extruding from the main crater, which could lead to explosive eruption.

The agency reported that Taal generates 39 volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. The quakes includes two volcanic tremor events that lasted three to five minutes. Phivolcs also recorded 35 low frequency volcanic earthquakes and two hybrid tremors.

Taal Volcano also emits steam-driven plume amid the foggy morning. The public is still prohibited to enter the 7-km danger zone due to the hazards of pyroclastic density currents and volcanic tsunami.
