Taal Volcano spews ash anew, proof that magma recharge continues beneath the surface


Taal Volcano spewed more ash Friday morning (Jan 24), and it is a proof that magma continues to flow beneath the volcano's surface, Philvolcs said.


"Ito ay patunay na may aktibidad pa sa ilalim kasi nandyan pa po ang magma at 'yung tubig diyan ay napapakuluan. Wala lang masyadong puwersa para magkaroon ng pagsabog pero 'yung steaming eh nagincrease nang konti," Renato Solidum, Philvolcs head told radio DZMM.

"Pag nabara 'yung usok na 'yan, s'yempre magkakaroon ng pressure. Baka sumabog," he added.

Taal volcano's initial eruption last Jan 12 already evacuated almost 150,000 people living near the volcano.


Phivolcs also reiterated the imposed total evacuation of the Taal Volcano Island and other high-risk areas within the 14-km radius of the main crater and along Pansipit river where fissuring has been observed.
