On 2 November, PHIVOLCS lowered the Alert Level for Canlaon from 1 to 0. Since 26 July, 2006, no more ash explosions occurred and steam emissions and seismicity were low.

Based on interpretations of seismic data, an explosion at Canlaon that lasted more than 10 minutes occurred on 23 July. An ash column was not observed due to cloud cover. Trace deposits of ash fell up to 9 km ENE of the crater in the neighborhoods of Pula, Malaiba, and Lumapao. On 24 July, PHIVOLCS reported a total of 16 volcanic earthquakes, 3 short-duration tremors, and 2 earthquakes indicating small explosions. Ash was not observed.

Weak activity continues at Kanlaon volcano: Between 3 and 12 June, 4 small phreatic explosions occurred at the summit crater of Kanlaon volcano (3 June, 10 June, 2 times on 12 June). The explosions produced mainly steam and gas as well as small quantities of ash to heights up to 1000 m. Light ash-fall occurred on the upper slopes of the volcano. An exclusion zone of 4 km around the crater is being maintained. --->more on Kanlaon volcano
