Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions reached to a 67 tonnes/day.
GPS measurements detected continued long-term edifice inflation since 2017. Short-term electronic tilt monitoring on the southeastern flanks recorded slow inflation of the lower slopes since May 2019 and pronounced inflation of the upper slopes at the end of January 2020.
The warning bulletin states that ballistic impacts of volcanic bombs and pyroclastic flows could affect an area of about 4 km distance from the main crater.

DOST-PHIVOLCS recorded two volcanic earthquakes beneath Kanlaon volcano over the past 24 hours. There is continued long term edifice inflation which has been occurring since 2017, while in the short-term, the southeastern flanks recorded slow inflation of the lower slopes since May 2019 and pronounced inflation of the upper slopes in the end of January 2020. According to DOST-PHIVOLCS, these indicators suggest that hydrothermal or magmatic activity is occurring deep beneath the edifice. The current alert level is ALERT LEVEL 1 Read all

Kanlaon volcano (Philippines) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 11 March-17 March 2020 (New Activity / Unrest)
PHIVOLCS reported that ground-deformation data at Kanlaon indicated long-term slow inflation of the volcano since 2017, slow inflation of the lower flanks since May 2019, and notable inflation of the upper flanks beginning near the end of January 2020. The seismic network recorded a total of 80 volcanic earthquakes since 9 March; 77 of them were low-frequency events associated with magmatic fluids. The deformation and seismic data both indicated unrest; PHIVOLCS raised the Alert Level to 1 (on a scale of 0-5) on 11 March and reminded the public to remain outside of the 4-km-radius Permanent Danger Zone. ...
