Canlaon (Kanlaon) volcano (Philippines): small ash eruptions last night

Two small explosions occurred at the volcano yesterday evening, at around 18:20 and 19:18 local time. An ash plume rose to approx. 1500 m above the summit and some freshly ejected incandescent bombs could be seen at the crater rim.
Light ash falls occurred in areas northwest from the volcano in up to 35 km distance including Bago City. Whether the explosions were caused by fresh (juvenile) magma that had risen or were the result of overheated ground water flashing to steam (phreatic explosions) is impossible to say without a more detailed analysis of the erupted ash.
The volcano has been showing signs of unrest for several months, including slight inflation of the edifice and increased earthquake activity. A nearby magnitude 3.0 quake was felt on 18 March and might have a relation with the new volcanic activity as well.
Similar explosions had occurred already last November and December and the likelihood of of more activity in the near future is relatively large.
