3 volcanic quakes from Mayon in last 24 hours

Volcano Alert

At least three volcanic quakes were recorded from restive Mayon Volcano in the last 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Sunday.
 
In its 8 a.m. update, Phivolcs also noted white steam plumes of moderate volume drifting west-southwest and west-northwest.
 
Phivolcs likewise observed a crater glow at Intensity I Saturday night.
 
Also, Phivolcs said Mayon’s alert level remains at 3, meaning an eruption is still likely within weeks.
 
More than 12,000 families were evacuated from their homes in Mayon’s danger zone since mid-September, when Phivolcs raised the alert level at Mayon to 3.
 
Last Nov. 3, the Office of Civil Defense allowed residents in the seven- to eight-kilometer extended danger zone to return home for now.
