No volcanic quake was detected at Mayon Volcano in the last 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Saturday.

 

In its 8 a.m. update, Phivolcs said it noted white steam plumes of weak to moderate volume creeping down-slope and drifting west-northwest.

 

Phivolcs did not observe any crater glow due to rain clouds covering the summit.

 

Mayon's alert level remained at 2, meaning the chances of a hazardous eruption within days to weeks has lessened, but the unrest has not ended.

 

Phivolcs also reiterated its warning against entry in the six-kilometer permanent danger zone "due to perennial hazards of rockfalls, avalanche, ash puffs and sudden steam-driven or phreatic eruptions at the summit area."

 

It also reminded those in valleys and active river channels to remain vigilant against sediment-laden stream flows and lahar in case of prolonged and heavy rainfall. — Joel Locsin/LBG, GMA News
