Taal volcano (Luzon Island, Philippines): unrest continues, more than 100 volcanic quakes
The volcano remains very restless - seismic and gas emission activity continue to be elevated, indicating that magma is moving and accumulating underneath the surface and might cause new eruptions at any time.

The seismic network detected 102 small volcanic earthquakes today and estimated SO2 emissions at 3,256 tonnes/day yesterday. Ground deformation parameters from electronic tilt, continuous GPS and InSAR monitoring continue to record a very slow and steady inflation and expansion of the Taal region that began after the January 2020 eruption. These parameters indicate persistent magmatic activity at shallow depths beneath the edifice.
Alert Level 2 (Increased Unrest) is currently maintained over Taal Volcano, but elevated unrest has been recurring and volcano conditions remain unstable.
