In their latest post about the volcano, the institute shared snapshots of the “relative calm at the surface” Taal Volcano Island.
“The Taal Volcano Network has been recording numerous imperceptible volcanic tremors beneath the edifice since 13 February 2021 while recent field data indicate increased acidity and high temperatures of the Main Crater Lake,” Philvolcs posted.
Taal Volcano is one of the most famous volcanoes in the Philippines. It is located in Batangas and is regarded as one of the most popular tourist spots in the country as well. During summer, it is one of the favorite hangouts of Filipinos from all over the country.
In a recent report by KAMI, the Philippine Coast Guard has forcibly evacuated the people of Taal Volcano Island following the Batangas PDRRMO order.
"There are increased possibilities of sudden steam-driven or phreatic explosions, hazardous volcanic gas, and minor ashfall from the Main Crater Lake," Philvolcs then warned.
Taal Volcano's latest eruption was recorded on January 12, 2020 that displaced hundreds of thousands last year.
