Rumbling sounds not from Mt. Pinatubo, Zambales townsfolk told

SAN MARCELINO, Zambales — The local government here reassured residents on Friday, April 19, that the deep rumbling sounds they have been hearing the past two days were not from Mt. Pinatubo.

The San Marcelino Public Information Office (PIO) clarified that the noises were not related to any blasting or mining activities in the town.

It said the municipal disaster risk reduction and management office had reached out to the authorities from Capas town in the nearby Tarlac province and confirmed that the noise came from a bomb defusal operation carried out by the Philippine Air Force and the Philippine Marines.
