After five successive minor ash explosions and 43 volcanic earthquakes recorded at seismic network for the past 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) on Monday raised the alert level at Mayon Volcano from two to three.
“Kaninang umaga nagkaroon po ng maliliit na pagsabog. Hindi naman ito kalakasan. At ngayong gabi napansin nga ng ating staff na merong nagbabagong material na lumalabas sa crater,” said Phivolcs director Renato Solidum in an interview with radio dzBB.
“Dahil dito tinataas natin yung alert level from alert level 2 to alert level 3 (Because of this, we have raised the alert status in Mayon Volcano from alert level 2 to 3),” he added.
