Pinatubo volcano (Luzon, Philippines) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 21 September-27 September 2022 (Continuing Activity)

On 25 September PHIVOLCS warned of potential lahars around Pinatubo due to intense rains from a typhoon expected during 25-26 September. Significant deposits from 1991 pyroclastic density currents on the W flank may be remobilized, generating lahars down major drainages in that watershed. PHIVOLCS noted that the communities of San Marcelino, San Narciso, San Felipe, and Botolan, Zambales Province, and communities in Tarlac and Pampanga Provinces may be affected by lahars and flooding.

A plume mostly comprised of steam was seen rising above weather clouds within a few minutes of the end of the event. ... Read all
