Watch the special coverage of ABS-CBN’s DZMM on the recent explosion of Taal Volcano.
Kapamilya’s veteran news anchors Vic De Leon and Alvin Elcheco will deliver the latest updates on the said recent volcano eruption.
According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology may erupt within hours or days and that’s the reason why the escalated alert level from Alert Level 3 (magmatic unrest) to Alert Level 3 (magmatic unrest).
The said government agency continues to monitor its activity and since 11:00 AM this morning they already have recorded two earthquakes with an intensity of 2.5 (6:15 PM) and 3.9 (6:22 PM).
Phivolcs also advised residents to vacate the area from the Taal Volcano Island and places within the 14-kilometer radius from Taal Main Crater.
“Mariing inuulit ng DOST-PHIVOLCS ang kabuuang paglikas mula sa Taal Volcano Island at karagdagang paglikas sa mapanganib o high-risk na mga lugar sa loob ng 14-kilometer radius mula sa Taal Main Crater dahil sa posibleng banta ng pagkakaroon ng pyroclastic density current (mabilis na daluyong ng napakainit na usok at abo) at volcanic tsunami. Ang mga lugar sa hilaga ng Bulkang Taal ay pinapayuhang magbantay at maging maingat sa epekto ng tuluy-tuloy at matagalang pag-ulan ng abo,” as mentioned in the 7:30 PM bulletin.
