5 volcanic quakes, sulfur dioxide emission monitored at Kanlaon; alert level 1 stays

3 weeks ago

(Eagle News)–Five volcanic earthquakes were monitored at Kanlaon in 24 hours.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said sulfur dioxide emission was also measured at the volcano, which remains on alert level 1.

PHIVOLCS said the emission was at an average of 42 tons on  November 8.

PHIVOLCS said a slight inflation of the lower and mid slopes since June 2020, and an inflation on the lower to mid slopes that began on  June 21 “may indicate hydrothermal or magmatic processes occurring beneath the edifice.”

PHIVOLCS reminded the public that at alert level 1, the volcano  is at “an abnormal condition and has entered a period of unrest. ”

The local government units and the public were strongly reminded about the ban on the entry into the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone.

Civil aviation authorities were  advised  to caution pilots against flying close to the volcano’s summit.

“PHIVOLCS is closely monitoring Kanlaon Volcano’s activity and any new development will be relayed to all concerned,” PHIVOLCS said.
