According to PHILVOLCS, this explosive activity was followed by increased seismicity and volcanic tremor probably caused by degassing.
An exclusion zone of 4 km radius around the crater was put in place, to prevent similar accidents as when 3 climbers were killed by a sudden explosion in the 1990s.
