PHIVOLCS: “Water begins to fill up Taal Volcano Main Crater Lake”

Water begins to fill up the Taal Volcano Main Crater Lake

An aerial inspection once again was conducted by the Joint Task Force Taal around the Taal volcano last January 27, 2020. It continues to produce mild smoke or “steam”.

Water begins to fill up the Taal Volcano Main Crater Lake weeks after the eruption.

As of January 29, 2020, 8:00 AM Alert Level 3 is maintained over Taal Volcano. DOST-PHIVOLCS reminds the public that sudden steam-driven and even weak phreatomagmatic explosions, volcanic earthquakes, ashfall, and lethal volcanic gas expulsions can still occur and threaten areas within Taal Volcano Island and nearby lakeshores.

DOST-PHIVOLCS recommends that entry into the Taal Volcano Island as well as into areas over Taal Lake and communities west of the island within a seven (7) km radius from the Main Crater must be strictly prohibited.
