11 volcanic quakes naitala sa Bulusan
NAITALA ang 11 volcanic quakes sa paligid ng Bulusan Volcano sa Sorsogon matapos muling magbuga ng abo at steam, Miyerkules ng hapon.
Ayon sa Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), namataan ang steaming activity ng naturang bulkan ngayong Huwebes.
“Steaming activity varied from wispy to voluminous with white steam columns reaching a maximum height of 300-500 meters above the crater rim before drifting south-southwest to south. (Wednesday’s) measurement of sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission rate produced an average value of 22 tonnes per day,” ayon sa Thursday update ng Philvocs.
Bandang 1:22 p.m., ng Miyerkules, nang magbuga ng abo na may taas na 1 km. ang Bulusan.
Dagdag pa ng Phivolcs, nakataas pa rin sa Alert Level 1 ang Bulusan Volcano kung saan hindi pa rin maaaring tumapak sa 4-km permanent danger zone ang mga residente roon.
“Due to the prevailing wind direction, residents located in the northwest and southwest sectors of the volcano are advised to take precautions against ashfalls. Civil aviation authorities must also warn pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ejected ash and volcanic fragments from sudden explosions may pose hazards to aircrafts,” saad nito.
