26 earthquakes, 303 rockfall events recorded in Mayon while it remains under Alert Level 3


MANILA, Philippines — Twenty-six earthquakes, along with 303 rockfalls and three pyroclastic density currents (PDCs), have been recorded at Mayon Volcano over the past 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Sunday.

Based on his 8 a.m. bulletin, Phivolcs said the volcano continued to show “intensified unrest or magmatic unrest” and remains under Alert Level 3 due to “potential explosive activity in days to weeks.”

Previously, Phivolcs monitored eight lower volcanics, one lower PDC, and 303 rockfall events.

In addition, the volcano has poured out a “very slow” lava flow, which remained at 2.8 kilometers (km) and 1.3 km along the Mi-isi and Bonga ravines, respectively, while the other flows of lava in both ravines also remained at 3.3 km and 4 km. along Basud Gully.

Phivolcs also reported that the volcano had increased its daily sulfur dioxide emission from 792 tonnes on July 8 to 1,145 tonnes on July 9, with plumes reaching 1,000 meters in height as they moved west-southwest.

Locals within the area were warned that rockfalls, landslides, avalanches, ballistic fragments, lava flows, and moderate-sized explosions, among others, could occur amid the Mayon riots.

According to the National Council for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, the Mayon riots had already affected 37,953 people or 9,779 families residing in 26 barangays within the Bicol region as of July 6.
