Taal Volcano once more showed activity as it rumbled in the last 24 hours, with the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) recording five earthquakes within the said timeframe.
According to Phivolcs, the rumbling and earthquakes were related to the "rock-fracturing processes beneath and around the edifice."
Inquirer stated that steam was emitted by vents on the main crater, which reached heights of 20 to 30 meters. Those found along the Kastila Trail also showed similar activities.
The volcano is still under Alert Level 1, which according to Phivolcs would comprise steam-driven or phreatic explosions, minor ashfall, volcanic earthquakes, or expulsion of volcanic gas.
Local government units are advised to keep monitoring the volcanic activities and those surrounding areas must be scrutinized for damage. Barangays must also strengthen their preparedness and communication measures. Residents must also observe precautionary measures and must remain vigilant.
In a previous KAMI report, Angel Locsin went viral after she started helping out victims of the eruption of Taal Volcano. She asked about what was needed by the victims and after which, she was tagged as the real-life Darna.
Taal Volcano is one of the most famous volcanoes in the Philippines. It is also considered as a tourist destination.
