Weak steam emissions rising at least 20 meters high were recorded from Taal Volcano, the Philippine Volcanology and Seismology said in a bulletin Tuesday.
Phivolcs said five volcanic earthquakes were likewise recorded in the past 24 hours.
Alert Level 1 is raised over the volcano, which means steam-driven explosions, volcanic earthquakes, and minor ashfall can occur.
“Local government units are advised to continuously assess previously evacuated barangays around Taal Lake for damages and road accessibilities and to strengthen preparedness, contingency, and communication measures in case of renewed unrest,” Phivolcs said in its bulletin.
