The state volcanology bureau said that as of 2:04 p.m., Taal Volcano's main crater escalated its eruptive activity, generating an eruption plume one kilometer-high accompanied by volcanic tremor and felt earthquakes at the Taal Volcano Island and the barangay of Agoncillo, Batangas. Ashfall is currently being showered on the southwest sector of Taal.

Malacañang earlier announced the suspension of Monday work at government offices in the National Capital Region, Calabarzon and Region 3. Private companies were also urged to suspend work due to health risks of ashfall from the non-magma explosion of the volcano.
