Phivolcs Says Taal Volcano Generates 2 Volcanic Eruptions in Past 24 Hours

Taal Volcano Generates 2 Volcanic Eruptions in Past 24 Hours, Phivolcs Says

Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) reported that Taal Volcano, located in Batangas, Philippines, has experienced two volcanic tremors within the past 24 hours.

In their 5 a.m. bulletin on Saturday (June 3, 2023), PHIVOLCS reported that one of the volcanic tremors has been ongoing since 6:35 am on Friday (June 2).

The recent volcanic activity has resulted in the emission of approximately 5,831 tonnes of sulfur dioxide, and PHIVOLCS has observed a significant upwelling of hot volcanic fluids at the Main Crater Lake.


Furthermore, moderate plumes up to 1,500 meters in height have been observed moving north and east-northeast.

Despite these changes, PHIVOLCS keeps Taal Volcano at Alert Level 1 (Low-level unrest). Taal Volcano Island, notably the Main Crater and Daang Kastila cracks, is still off-limits, according to the government.

There are still restrictions on occupancy, boating near the volcano, and flying airplanes close to the area. This preventative action is intended to reduce the possibility of steam-driven or phreatic explosions, volcanic earthquakes, small ashfall, and the release of toxic volcanic gases.


Since the last week of May, PHIVOLCS has also seen hot fluids upwelling in Taal Main Crater Lake and considerable expansion of the southwest volcanic island.

“These parameters indicate that shallow hydrothermal activity driven by a new phase of magma degassing at depth is currently taking place at Taal Volcano,” the agency said.

PHIVOLCS, in collaboration with local authorities, ensures that necessary precautions are taken to minimize the potential risks posed by volcanic unrest.
