3 volcanic earthquakes at Mayon in past 24 hours

LEGAZPI CITY—Three volcanic earthquakes and one rockfall event has been recorded in Mayon Volcano's seismic network during the past 24 hours.

According to PHIVOLCS, moderate emission of white steam plumes drifting east-southeast and southeast was observed.

The data indicate that the volcano is still in a state of unrest due to the movement of potentially eruptible magma.

PHIVOLCS also clarified that Mayon Volcano’s alert status remains at Alert Level 3. This means that magma is at the crater and that hazardous eruption is possible within weeks.

It is recommended that the 6-km radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) around the volcano and the 7-km Extended Danger Zone (EDZ) on the southeastern flank be enforced due to the danger of rock falls, landslides and sudden explosions or dome collapse that may generate hazardous volcanic flows.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
