Phivolcs: 2 volcanic quakes at Mayon in last 24 hours

At least two volcanic quakes were recorded at restive Mayon Volcano in the last 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Thursday.

In its 8 a.m. update, Phivolcs also observed moderate steaming activity that crept downslope and drifted southwest.
 
No crater glow was observed Wednesday night, however.
 
Still, Phivolcs warned Mayon remains unstable and that its alert level remains at 3, meaning an eruption is still possible at any time.
 
More than 12,000 families were evacuated from their homes in Mayon's danger zone since mid-September, when Phivolcs raised the alert level at Mayon to 3.
 
Last Nov. 3, the Office of Civil Defense allowed residents in the seven- to eight-kilometer extended danger zone to return home for now.
 
On Nov. 4, many families whose homes were within the seven- to eight-kilometer extended danger zone were allowed to go home.
 
Earlier this week, more than 2,000 more were allowed to decamp and spend the holidays at home. —Joel Locsin/KG,
