Bulusan volcano (Philippines) could be close to a new eruption. The volcano has been showing increased seismic activity and slight inflation on the NNE flank during the past 2 weeks, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHILVOLCS) reports.
A warning for possible eruptions was issued and it is advised to stay out of a 4 km radius around the volcano and not to fly over it.

PHIVOLCS reported on 20 May that seismicity from Bulusan remained high following the explosion on 12 May. Ground deformation measurements conducted on 17 May on the NE flank revealed 4 mm of inflation compared to the previous measurement on7 April. The Alert Level was raised from 1 to 2 (out of 5) due to the increased seismicity and inflation.[mehr]
