National Disaster Alert

Apr 13, 2022

On 11 April 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Manila issued a Natural Disaster Alert regarding the Taal Volcano, which reads in part as follows: “The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) has lowered Taal Volcano’s status to Alert Level 2 .

“Following the phreatomagmatic eruption of the Main Crater on 26 March 2022 and six (6) weak phreatomagmatic bursts until 31 March 2022, unrest at Taal Volcano has markedly declined.

“PHIVOLCS is lowering the alert status of Taal Volcano to reflect the overall decreasing trend in the level of monitored parameters. Alert Level 2 means that there is decreased unrest but should not be interpreted that unrest has ceased or that the threat of an eruption has disappeared. Should an uptrend or pronounced change in monitored parameters occur, the Alert Level may be raised back to 3.”
