PHIVOLCS reported that Volcanic Alert Level lowered from level 2 to level 1 as the volcano has been continued to decline in the monitored parameters since 29 March 2018. Read more... read all

Mayon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded 3 rockfall related events over the past 24-hours. Steam plume emissions drifted west and west-northwest. Faint crater glow from the summit could be observed at night. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions was measured at an average of 176 tonnes/day on 17 April 2020. Inflation of the middle to upper portions of the volcanic edifice that began in the last quarter of 2019 continues. Read more... read all

PHIVOLCS reported that the seismic station records 10 volcano-tectonic earthquakes during the last 24 hours. Read more... read all

The volcano is restless, emitting moderate amounts of steam and gas. Monitoring data shows that inflation of volcano continues. Read more... read all

DOST-PHIVOLCS recorded two volcanic earthquakes from Mayon Volcano over the past 24 hours. Moderate emissions of steam-laden plumes that crept downslope before drifting to the general west was observed. Inflation of the northern sector of the volcanic edifice that began in the last quarter of 2019 continues. This follows an inflationary trend that began in February 2019. The alert level remains at ALERT LEVEL 2. Read more...

Mayon Volcano (image from Google Earth)
Mayon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded one volcanic earthquake over the last 24 hours. DOST-PHIVOLCS observed weak steam emissions with plumes drifting east-northeast. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions was measured at 115 tonnes/day on 10 January 2020. Ground deformation data from Precise Levelling surveys obtained on 23 – 30 October 2019 indicate a slight deflation of the edifice relative to 16 – 25 July 2019. However, the volcano generally remains inflated relative to the early 2019 baseline level. This is consistent with recent electronic tilt data. Continuous GPS data also showed inflation of the edifice since February 2019. Read more... read all
