Malindang volcano is a stratovolcano on the western margin of Iligan Bay in north-central Mindanao Island, 20 km NE of Tambulig, Philippines. It is part of the Malindang National Park.

Background:

The basaltic to andesitic Malindang stratovolcano contains a small summit caldera. There are no known historic eruptions, but legends tell of a large eruption in the past.

1991 earthquake and false eruption alarm
In 1991, a tectonic earthquake coincided with rumblings from a thunderstorm on the volcano and reports about volcanic activity spread rapidly, triggering a false eruption alarm and authorities started widespread evacuations. No eruption occurred, but a previously unknown geothermal area was discovered.
