Bulusan , Philippines : fifteen (15) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours.

BULUSAN VOLCANO BULLETIN 14 March 2016 8:00 A.M.

Bulusan Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded fifteen (15) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Weak emission of white steam plumes that rose up to 50m above the summit before drifting towards southwest was observed. Precise leveling survey results from February 23-28, 2016 indicated slight deflationary changes of the volcano’s edifice relative to December 2015, consistent with ground deformation measurements from continuous GPS data since February 2016.

Alert Level 1 (abnormal) remains in effect over Bulusan Volcano. This indicates that hydrothermal processes are underway beneath the volcano that may lead to steam-driven eruptions. The local government units and the public are reminded that entry into the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) is strictly prohibited due to the possibility of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions.
