Taal continues emitting steam as cracks widen, hazardous eruption imminent, Philippines

Taal volcano continues emitting steam as fissures identified in barangays of Lemery, Agoncillo, Talisay, and San Nicolas in Batangas Province widen, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) reported on Friday, January 17, 2020. Alert Level 4 remains in place over the volcano, indicating an imminent hazardous eruption.

"Since 08:00 AM (12:00 UTC) this morning, Taal Volcano's activity has been generally characterized by weak emission of steam-laden plumes 800 m (2 625 feet) high from the Main Crater that drifted to the general southwest," PHIVOLCS said in its update at 09:00 UTC.

TAAL VOLCANO BULLETIN Update 8 AM Jan 20, 2020

Activity in the Main Crater in the past 24 hours has been characterized by steady steam emission and infrequent weak explosions that generated white to dirty white ash plumes 500 to 1000 meters tall and dispersed ash southwest of the Main Crater. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission was measured at an average of 4353 tonnes/day.

The Philippine Seismic Network (PSN) plotted a total of seven hundred fourteen (714) volcanic earthquakes since 1:00 PM, January 12, 2020. One hundred seventy-six (176) of these registered at magnitudes M1.2 – M4.1 and were felt at Intensities I – V. Since 5:00 AM on January 19, 2020 until 6:00 AM today, there were twenty-three (23) volcanic earthquakes plotted, registered at magnitudes M1.2-M3.8 with one (1) felt event at intensity I.

For the past 24 hours, the Taal Volcano Network, which can record small earthquakes undetectable by the PSN, recorded six hundred seventy-three  (673) volcanic earthquakes including twelve (12) low-frequency earthquakes. Such intense seismic activity likely signifies continuous magmatic intrusion beneath the Taal edifice, which may lead to further eruptive activity.

Alert Level 4 still remains in effect over Taal Volcano. This means that hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days. DOST-PHIVOLCS strongly reiterates total evacuation of Taal Volcano Island and high-risk areas as identified in the hazard maps within the 14-km radius from Taal Main Crater and along the Pansipit River Valley where fissuring has been observed. Based on PAGASA wind forecast, if the eruption plume remains below five (5) km, ash will be drifted to south and southwest of the Main Crater; however, if a major eruption occurs during the day and eruption column exceeds 5 km, ash will also be drifted to the eastern and northeastern sectors and may fall on portions of Batangas, Laguna and Quezon. Residents around the volcano are advised to guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall. Civil aviation authorities must advise pilots to avoid the airspace around Taal Volcano as airborne ash and ballistic fragments from the eruption column pose hazards to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is continually monitoring the eruption and will update all stakeholders of further developments.

TAAL Volcano UPDATE:

22 January 2020, 4:00 PM

https://reliefweb.int/report/philippines/ndrrmc-update-situational-report-no-33-re-taal-volcano-eruption-22-january-2020


Since 5:00 AM this morning, there were no ash emissions based on our seismic records and visual observations. However, unconsolidated ash blanketing Taal Volcano Island has been remobilized and transported by strong low-level winds towards southwest (SW), affecting the towns of Lemery and Agoncillo. Reports from several airlines state the presence of remobilized volcanic ash at a height of approximately 5800m (19000ft).

PHIVOLCS reiterates Alert Level 4 over Taal Volcano. This means that hazardous explosive eruption is still possible within hours to days. DOST-PHIVOLCS strongly recommends total evacuation of Taal Volcano Island and high-risk areas as identified in the hazard maps within the 14-km radius from Taal Main Crater and along the Pansipit River Valley where fissuring has been observed. Based on PAGASA wind forecast, if the eruption plume remains below three (3) km, ash will be drifted to the municipalities west and southwest of the Main Crater; however, if a major eruption occurs during the day and the eruption column exceeds 5 km, ash will also be drifted over the eastern part of Laguna, and some parts of Rizal and Marinduque. Residents around the volcano are advised to guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall. Civil aviation authorities must advise pilots to avoid the airspace around Taal Volcano as airborne ash and ballistic fragments from the eruption column pose hazards to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is continually monitoring the eruption and will update all stakeholders of further developments.

A total of 725 volcanic earthquakes were plotted in Taal region as of 22 January 2020, 6:00 AM. Of which, 176 were felt, ranging from Magnitude 1.2 — 4.1 and Intensity of I — V.

B. 3-Day Wind Forecast for Taal Volcano (22 January 2020, 5:00 PM — 24 January 2020, 5:00 PM)

Source: DOST-PAGASA NCR-PRSD

Batangas, Cavite, and Laguna will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated light rains.

If the eruption column remains at 5.0 km or below, the ash plumes will be drifted to the municipalities west and northwest of Taal Volcano. However, if a major eruption occurs within the forecast period and the column exceeds 7.0 km, ash plumes may also be drifted over western parts of Laguna and Quezon.

Taal volcano update: NASA detects shifting ground around the erupting Philippines Volcano

TAAL volcano threatens to erupt any moment now, geologists have warned, as NASA satellites track ground deformation around the active Philippines volcano.

By SEBASTIAN KETTLEY
PUBLISHED: 06:35, Fri, Jan 24, 2020 | UPDATED: 07:19, Fri, Jan 24, 2020

The alert level for Taal volcano is 4, meaning the fiery mountain on Luzon Island could erupt within “hours to days”. The volcano has been steadily rumbling since it erupted twice this month, on January 12 and January 13.

The two eruptions coated Luzon Island in a thick blanket of ash but have mostly spared its inhabitants from major destruction.

Geologists, however, fear hundreds of localised earthquakes around Taal suggest magma is moving deep underground – a potential processor to an explosive eruption.

Using radar data collected by satellites passing over the Philippines volcano, NASA scientists have been able to detect changes in local ground deformation.

The technique is known as interferometric synthetic aperture radar or InSAR.
