PHIVOLCS warns of possible Taal Volcano eruption as gas emissions records rise

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) warned the public about the possible eruption of Taal volcano based on the record rise in volumes of gas emissions, earthquakes, and rumblings that are felt from the volcano’s peak to the south of Manila.

“The highest levels of volcanic sulfur dioxide, or SO2 gas emission, was recorded today at an average of 22,628 tonnes/day, the highest ever recorded in Taal,” said PHIVOLCS in an update on the current state of Taal.

The volcanic agency added that they have recorded a total of 26 “strong and very shallow, low-frequency volcanic earthquakes” where some are accompanied by rumblings.

According to PHIVOLCS, locals may experience a repeat of what happened last Thursday, July 1, where authorities raised a level 3 local alert after Taal’s main crater erupted, creating a dark, jetted plume about one kilometer high.
