Taal volcano erupting with sporadic lava fountaining, 144 volcanic earthquakes recorded

After a brief waning of activity following lava fountaining at 2:49 to 4:28 a.m. today, Taal's eruption resumed immediately with weak sporadic lava fountaining and hydrovolcanic activity at the main crater that generated two-kilometer high plumes, Phivolcs says in its 4 p.m. eruption update.

State volcanologists from Philvolcs say the heavy ashfall from the ongoing eruptions has also fallen southwest in Cuenca, Lemery and Taal in Batangas.

A total of 144 volcanic earthquakes have been recorded in the Taal region since 1 p.m. Sunday, January 12.

Homes and streets across the region surrounding the Taal volcano, which exploded to life on Sunday accompanied by a series of earthquakes, were coated in fine grit and at least 10,500 people had sought refuge in evacuation centres. (Photo Paul Quiambao)
