On Sunday night, June 26, Phivolcs observed a small volume of lahar triggered by heavy rainfall along Calang Creek in Barangay Cogon in Irosin town.

Authorities warned families living near the river channels of another possible lahar flow during rainy days.

Phivolcs earlier said that the volcano released about 710,000 cubic meters of ash during the June 5 and 12 phreatic eruptions.

The volcano is still inflated and remains under Alert Level 1, which means another phreatic eruption is possible, Phivolcs added.
