Taal Volacano raises warning to Alert Level 2 increasing unrest - PHILVOLCS

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Philvolcs) increased its alert level on Taal volcano as the tourist attraction recorded increased unrest.

“This means that there is probable magmatic activity that or may or may not lead to an eruption,” Philvolcs said, as the agency advising the public that entry into the volcano island is prohibited. 

At Alert Level 2, this means that there is probable magmatic activity that may or may not lead to an eruption.

Evacuation is not yet recommended, however, the public is reminded that Taal Volcano Island is a Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) and that entry into TVI, especially the vicinities of the Main Crater and the Daang Kastila fissure, must remain strictly prohibited. 

Local government units are advised to continuously assess previously evacuated barangays around Taal Lake for damages and road accessibilities and to strengthen preparedness, contingency, and communication measures in case of renewed unrest. 

"Overall, seismic activity in the past month indicates increased magmatic and hydrothermal activity at shallow depths beneath TVI," the agency added.
