At that time, the seismic network recorded several volcanic earthquakes, while the precise levelling survey showed that the volcano was slightly inflated.
As precautionary measures, the local government units and the public were reminded that entry to the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) is strictly prohibited due to the possibility of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions.
Civil aviation authorities were also directed to advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ejecta from sudden eruptions may be hazardous to aircrafts.
Lastly, people living within valleys and along river/stream channels were instructed to be vigilant against sediment-laden stream flows and lahars in the event of heavy and prolonged rainfall.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
