DOT RD Ravanilla issues Bulusan travel advisory

SORSOGON CITY—Department of Tourism Regional Director Maria Ravanilla has issued a travel advisory today (May 7) barring tourists from entering the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) due because of the possibility of sudden and hazardous steam-driven phreatic eruptions.


 
The bulletin was released in response to the Bulusan Volcano Bulletin issued earlier today by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Tourism activities within the 4-kilometer danger zone are temporarily suspended, said Ravanilla.

The Regional Director reminded the local government units, as well as the general public, that the suspension will only be lifted once the state volcanology bureau has downgraded the alert level to zero.

Ravanilla, however, clarified that Bulusan Lake, which is located beyond the danger zone is still considered safe for tourists. Hence, "Eco adventure activities such as kayaking, canoeing, boating, and trekking within the lake's perimeter can still be enjoyed by tourists within the Bulusan Volcano Natural Park," the letter indicated.—With Report from BICOL STANDARD-Sorsogon Correspondent Edgar Tumangan, Wow Smile FM
