LEGAZPI CITY – Mt. Bulusan in Sorsogon province spewed a 2-kilometer ash column around 11:35 a.m., Friday.

Renato Solidum of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said in a phone interview that the eruption was “phreatic” which produced a grayish ash plume that drifted to the western side of the volcano. In the past 24 hours, Phivolcs has recorded 113 quakes around Mt. Bulusan.
