Bulletin om Taal 24. januar

BULLETIN 24 January 2020 8:00 A.M.

Activity i hovedkrateret i de sidste 24 timer har været præget af hvide damskyer fra 50 til 500 meters højde., som af vinden blev drevet i sydvestlig retning. Der siver ca. 224 tons SO2 Svovldioxidgasser ud pr. dag. 

For de seneste 24timer er der mange små minijordskælv, 446, hvilket betyder, at magma bevæger sig under vulkanen.

Man forventer, at udbrud kan komme når som helst.

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 the municipalities west and northwest of the Main Crater; however, if a major eruption occurs during the day and the eruption column exceeds 7 km, ash will also be drifted over the western parts of Laguna and Quezon provinces. 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.
