Aside from jolts, Phivolcs also recorded weak and shallow hydrothermal or magmatic gas activity within the edifice of the volcano.

White steam-laden plumes from the lower southeast vent were also seen.

These indicate that volcanic processes are underway beneath the edifice that may be caused by deep-seated degassing or hydrothermal activity or magmatic intrusion.

From July 3 to 6, Phivolcs recorded 53 volcanic quakes in Mt. Bulusan. On July 6, Phivolcs raised Mt. Bulusan’s alert level to 1, which signals an abnormal status.
