Kanlaon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded six (6) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Background activity at the active crater was not observed due to thick rain clouds covering the summit.

Alert Level 1 status remains in effect over Kanlaon Volcano, which means that it is currently in a state of unrest driven by hydrothermal processes that could generate more minor eruptions. 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 minor ash 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.
