“DOST-PHIVOLCS would like to remind the public that Kanlaon Volcano is at Alert Level 1 which means that it is at an abnormal condition and has entered a period of unrest,” the advisory said.

The volcano’s vent showed weak emission of white steam-laden plumes that rose 300 meters before drifting northwest and southeast. Sulfur dioxide emission was measured at an average of 438 tons/day.

“These parameters indicate that hydrothermal and magmatic activity is occurring beneath the edifice,” it said.
