MAYON VOLCANO BULLETIN 16 March 2019 | DOST-PHIVOLCS

Alert Level 2 currently prevails over Mayon Volcano. 

According to  Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) - Mayon Volcano’s seismic monitoring network recorded one (1) rockfall event during the 24-hour observation period. Moderate emission of white steam-laden plumes was observed to rise up to 500 meters above the summit before drifting west, west-southwest and southwest.  Fair crater glow from the summit could be observed at night. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission was measured at an average of 763 tonnes/day on 13 March 2019.

Mayon is at a moderate level of unrest. DOST-PHIVOLCS reminds the public that sudden explosions, lava collapses, pyroclastic density currents or PDCs and ashfall can still occur and threaten areas in the upper to middle slopes of Mayon. DOST-PHIVOLCS recommends that entry into the six kilometer-radius Permanent Danger Zone or PDZ and a precautionary seven kilometer-radius Extended Danger Zone or EDZ in the south-southwest to east-northeast sector, stretching from Anoling, Camalig to Sta. Misericordia, Sto. Domingo must be strictly prohibited.
