Taal volcano news & activity updates

Taal volcano (Philippines) eruption update: weak steam and ash emissions

Friday Jan 17, 2020 15:24 PM | BY: T

The volcano's activity has been characterized by weak emission of steam-laden plumes of up to 800 meters high from the Main Crater that drifted mainly to the southwest, PHIVOLCS reported:
A total of five (5) discrete weak explosions were recorded by the Taal Volcano Network.
The Philippine Seismic Network plotted a total of six hundred fifty-three (653) volcanic earthquakes since 1:00 PM, January 12, 2020. One hundred seventy-four (174) of these were felt with intensities ranging from Intensity I to V. Since 5:00 AM to 4:00 PM today, there were nineteen (19) volcanic earthquakes plotted. This signifies continuous magmatic intrusion beneath the Taal edifice, which may lead to further eruptive activity.
Alert Level 4 still remains in effect over Taal Volcano.
