Kanlaon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded two (2) volcanic earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Steaming activity could not be observed due to thick 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.
