Kanlaon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded fifteen (15) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Emission of moderate white steam plumes, 50 meters in height from the summit crater that drifted northeast was observed.

Alert Level 1 status remains in effect over Kanlaon Volcano, which means that it is at an abnormal condition and is in a period of current unrest. The local government units and the public are reminded that entry into the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) is strictly prohibited due to the further possibilities of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions. Civil aviation authorities must also advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as airborne ash from a sudden eruption can be hazardous to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is closely monitoring Kanlaon Volcano’s activity and any new development will be relayed to all concerned.
