Phivolcs places Kanlaon Volcano under Alert Level 1

BACOLOD CITY, Philippines -- The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has placed Negros Island’s Kanlaon Volcano under Alert Level 1, meaning there will be slightly elevated unrest and volcanic activity that could lead to steam and ash ejections.

In a bulletin issued Tuesday, Phivolcs advised the public not to enter the four-kilometer permanent danger zone (PDZ) around the volcano’s crater because sudden explosions may occur without warning.

Phivolcs also said there is a likelihood residents of areas beyond the PDZ and downwind of the crater would be affected by ash fall during explosion.
