Heightened activity seen at Taal volcano in the Philippines

February 3, 2011MANILA – Taal Volcano in Batangas showed heightened activity anew after at least 10 volcanic quakes around it were recorded in the last 24 hours. In its 8 a.m. Wednesday bulletin, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said the alert level at Taal remains at “1.” “Taal Volcano’s status at Alert Level 1 means that a hazardous eruption is not imminent. However, the public is reminded that the Main Crater should be strictly off-limits due to sudden occurrence of steam explosions and accumulation of toxic gases,” it said. Phivolcs said the northern rim of the Volcano’s main crater – in the vicinity of Daang Kastila trail – may also be dangerous when increased steam emission is reactivated along existing fissures. Phivolcs reminded the public that the entire Volcano Island is a Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ), and permanent settlement in the island is strictly not recommended.” –GMA News
