The Taal Volcano has erupted Sunday Morning and the cause is thought to be hydro-thermal in nature. In Batangas, an interview on Dobol B sa News TV states that the phreatic eruption was said to be recorded at around 11am. Three hours later a much stronger explosion was recorded, and more than one kilometer of ash was spewed into the sky.
Alert Level 1 didn’t last long, as officials quickly made the decision to raise the alert level to Level 2. This simply means that there will be a probability of a magmatic intrusion which could possibly lead to an eruption.
Three earthquakes were recorded at 7:35am, 10:43am, and 14:00pm Philippines Time Zone.
