Kanlaon, Philippines : eleven (11) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours.

KANLAON VOLCANO BULLETIN 25 November 2015 8:00 AM

Kanlaon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded eleven (11) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Moderate emission of dirty white steam and ash plumes that rose up to 150 m high above the summit crater before drifting to the southwest was observed in the morning.

Alert Level 1 status now currently prevails over Kanlaon Volcano, which means that it is at an abnormal condition and is in a period of current unrest. 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 further possibilities of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions. Civil aviation authorities must also advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as airborne ash from a sudden eruption can be hazardous to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is closely monitoring Kanlaon Volcano’s activity and any new development will be relayed to all concerned.
