Kanlaon Volcano spews ash anew

/ 04:33 PM December 27, 2015

Mount Kanlaon in Negros Oriental province spewed ash anew on Sunday afternoon, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.

Citing seismic records, Phivolcs said the eruption which started at around 1:29 p.m. from the volcano’s active crater lasted five minutes.

“The event was accompanied by a rumbling sound heard in Brgy. Cabagnaan, La Castellana, Sitio Guintubdan, Brgy. Ara-al and Brgy. Yubo, La Carlota City. From the southeastern side of the volcano, the eruption plume was observed through cloud cover to have reached 1000m above the active crater, although it may have lofted as high as 4500m above the summit based in pilot reports,” Phivolcs said in an advisory.

“Traces of light ashfall were reported in Sitio Guintubdan, Brgy. Ara-al, and Brgy. La Granja, La Carlota City and reached as far as the Municipality of Pontevedra, Negros Occidental,” it added.
