Kanlaon, Philippines : five (5) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours.

BULLETIN 02 May 2016 8:00 A.M.

Kanlaon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded five (5) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Wispy to moderate emission of white steam plumes that rose up to 600m before drifting to northwest was observed. Ground deformation measurements from continuous GPS data as of 30 April 2016 indicated slight inflation of the Kanlaon edifice since December 2015.

Alert Level 1 status remains in effect over Kanlaon Volcano, which means that it is currently in a state of unrest probably driven by hydrothermal processes that could generate more minor 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 further possibilities of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or minor ash eruptions.
