Bulusan, Philippines : fifty five (55) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours.

BULUSAN VOLCANO BULLETIN 21 March 2016 8:00 A.M.

Bulusan Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded fifty five (55) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Wispy emission of white steam plumes that drifted west-northwest 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.
