Mayon, Taal volcanoes on alert level 1
MANILA, Philippines—The Mayon and Taal volcanoes were on Alert Level 1 Monday as volcanic earthquakes were detected in the last 24 hours, although no eruption was imminent, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.
“Mayon Volcano’s seismic network detected one volcanic earthquake during the past 24-hour observation period. Steaming activity and crater glow could not be observed due to thick clouds covering the volcano’s summit the whole day yesterday up to this morning,” it said.
Meanwhile, one volcanic earthquake in Taal volcano in Batangas was also recorded during the 24-hour observation period.
Phivolcs is closely monitoring Mayon Volcano’s activity in Albay, as well as Taal volcano.
