MANILA, Philippines -- Taal Volcano rocked nine times Friday while Mt. Bulusan had three earthquakes in the past 24 hours ending at 8 a.m. yesterday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.
Phivolcs said Taal is still under Alert Level 1 and warned residents not to venture into the main crater since carbon dioxide emissions may be fatal in spite of the findings that steaming activity at the thermal area was weak. But no imminent eruption is forecast.
On the other hand, Mt. Bulusan recorded only three volcanic earthquakes until early morning yesterday and the emission of white smoke was weak at the southeast and northwest thermal vents.
