PHIVOLCS-DOST: Mayon Volcano update as of 8 March, 2018

This serves as a notice for the lowering of Mayon Volcano’s status from Alert Level 4 (hazardous eruption imminent) to Alert Level 3 (decreased tendency towards hazardous eruption).

PHIVOLCS: MAYON VOLCANO BULLETIN 08 March 2018 8:00 A.M.

SUMMARY | Alert Level 3 currently prevails over Mayon Volcano.

Mayon’s activity in the past 24 hours was characterized by general quiescence, gravity-driven lava flow and degassing from the summit crater.  Three (3) events between 05:52 AM and 12:51 PM generated ash plumes that rose 100 to 150 meters above the summit crater before drifting southwest.  At night, lava flows were observed to continue moving downslope within 3.3 kilometers, 4.5 kilometers and 1.9 kilometers from the crater on the Miisi, Bonga and Basud Gullies, respectively.

A total of one (1) volcanic earthquake and fifty-three (53) rockfall events were recorded by Mayon's seismic monitoring network. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission was measured at an average of 2,312 tonnes/day on 07 March 2018. Deflation of the lower slopes that began on 20 February is still being recorded by electronic tilt and by Precise Levelling (PL) surveys. Nonetheless, overall ground deformation data indicate that the edifice is still swollen or inflated relative to pre-eruption baselines.
