Itinaas na sa ikatlong alarma (Alert Level 3) ng Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) ang Bulkang Taal bunsod ng ‘magmatic unrest’ ngayong Huwebes, ika-1 ng Hulyo.
Dakong alas-3:16 ng hapon nang magkaroon ng phreatomagmatic plume o phreatic explosion ang Main Crater ng Bulkang Taal na umabot sa isang kilometrong taas.
Ayon sa PHIVOLCS, “This means that there is magmatic intrusion at the Main Crater that may further drive succeeding eruptions.”
Bunsod nito, mariing inirekomenda ng naturang ahensya ang paglikas ng mga nasa ‘high-risk’ na mga barangay gaya ng Agoncillo at Laurel sa Batangas dahil sa banta ng “pyroclastic density currents” at volcanic tsunami.”
“The public is reminded that the entire Volcano Island is a Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ), and entry into the island as well as high-risk barangays of Agoncillo and Laurel is prohibited,” anila.
Dagdag pa ng PHIVOLCS, “Communities around the Taal Lake shore are advised to take precautionary measures and be vigilant of possible lakewater disturbances related to the ongoing unrest.”
