TAAL VOLCANO CALMING DOWN; ALERT DOWN TO LEVEL 2

The alert warning in Taal Volcano has been downgraded to Alert Level 2 on Saturday morning, April 9 as the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said unrest at the volcano “has markedly declined.” 

“The rise in SO2 emissions prior to the March 26 phreatomagmatic eruption and its subsequent drop indicate that accumulated volcanic gas drives this type of eruptive activity at the main crater. Recent volcanic gas emissions, therefore, suggest that the potential for eruptive activity at present is low,” Phivolcs explained.
