Pinatubo Volcano’s monitoring network recorded nine (9) volcanic earthquakes during the 24-hour observation period.

 

Alert Level 1 is hoisted over Pinatubo Volcano, which means that there is low-level unrest that may be related to tectonic processes beneath the volcano and that no imminent eruption is foreseen. Entry into the Pinatubo Crater area must be conducted with extreme caution and should be avoided if possible. Communities and local government units surrounding Pinatubo are reminded to be always prepared for both earthquake and volcanic hazards and to review, prepare and strengthen their contingency, emergency and other disaster preparedness plans. DOST-PHIVOLCS continues to strengthen its monitoring of the volcano with ongoing upgrades to the PVN and periodic geochemical surveys of the Pinatubo crater lake and satellite analysis of ground deformation. DOST-PHIVOLCS is closely monitoring the volcano’s condition and any new development will be relayed to all concerned.
