Phivolcs on alert after recording ‘explosion-type’ activities at Mt. Kanlaon

  • Phivolcs recorded several “explosion-type” activities at Mount Kanlaon
  • The volcano is currently on alert level 1 for its abnormal activity
  • Pilots are advised to stay away from the area as volcanic activities may pose damages to aircraft

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) is currently on high alert after a series of “explosion-type” earthquakes have been recorded within the vicinity of Mount Kanlaon on Saturday.

In an article written by Joseph Tristan Roxas for GMA News Online on June 19, 2016, it was disclosed that Phivolcs has released an official bulletin regarding the status of the volcano on Sunday morning.

“In the past 24 hours, Kanlaon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded a total of eight (8) volcanic earthquakes, including explosion-type earthquakes,” the statement read; adding that “a series of steam and ash eruption events” reaching a height of 1,500 meters were also recorded starting 9:19 a.m. on June 18.

Moderate emissions of steam white plumes were also observed to have reached up to 400 meters, as seen by residents living near the area.

Meanwhile, light ashfall was reported on the western side of the volcano, specifically in Barangays Ara-al, San Miguel and Yubo in La Carlota City; Barangay Sag-ang in La Castellana; and Barangay Ilijan in Bago City.

Last November, the Phivolcs placed the volcano under alert level 1, which means that “it is at an abnormal condition and is in a period of current unrest.”

Local government officials from the cities and municipalities surrounding the area have already issued reminders that a permanent danger zone has been established at the volcano’s 4-kilometer radius; saying that entering the said area is strictly prohibited.

The Phivolcs has also advised the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) to discourage pilots from “flying close to the volcano’s summit as airborne ash from a sudden eruption can be hazardous to aircraft.

  4. Ang mga rebelde / Communists / NPA Na slaves ng Communist China ( apparently read Mao Tse Tung ‘s Manifesto na yon ang mga librong nagkalat nong kapanahunan ng traitorous Filipinos who pledge their allegiance to Communist China’s flag) ay ayaw kay FEM Dahil sa tinutugis sila! Apparently sa Universities ang breeding ground ng Communist/Leaning commie educators! Sila ang Nag brainwashed ng students nilang radicals na anti-Marcos. Slaves ng ideolohiya ng insekto sila. Imagine kung dika rebelde or nakialyado sa rebelde di kayo huhuliin! I was a teenager then, I can relate a lot na ang disiplinadong Filipino under Martial law ay di tutugusin ng mga Sundalo ( in charge sila sa pagpasunod ng batas). So stop the crap commies, you don’t know what you’re talking about ( I’m from the north at may cousins akong Nag join kasi by hook or by crook sumama ka sa kanila if you don’t have the resources to leave. Usong-uso nong kapanahunan nina Etta, Winnie etc. Ang anarchist at pro Commies, I bet they are programmed heads. Just like my friends first cousin who btw is female rebel. Naging Commander ng NPA / Communist and studied in U.P. (libre yan from scholarship, non kapanahunan nila ay may allowance pa ang mga traitors) . Hindi niya ginamit ang pagka doctor na natapos niya dahil naging Commander ng NPA at babaeng brain dead! Yan ba ang matatalino mga brainwashed? Study what’s all about the Cojuangco at Aquino nagrally ba ang mga traidor na Filipino communist! I’m sick in tired of the drama of the people so-called scholars from U.P nagpasubo or Nagpa brainwashed din sila sa extremist nilang professors! Mabuti nga di sila nakasuhan, dapat pinagtatanggal professors at mga scholarships ng students then dahil galing ang pera from the government resources! Sickening traitors, all they do is to demonized FEM na siya ang gumawa ng walang kasintulad kahit pagsamahin pa ang limang naging presidents who succeeded him!
