Ghio Ong, Helen Flores (The Philippine Star) - December 31, 2015 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Mt. Kanlaon in Negros Oriental spewed ash again on Wednesday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) reported yesterday. 

Phivolcs said “a low-energy ash eruption” was recorded at 12:30 p.m. 

Ash plumes that reached 100 meters above the summit were observed, the agency said. 

Phivolcs’ seismic monitoring network recorded 10 volcanic earthquakes in the past 24 hours. 

Alert Level 1 remains hoisted over the volcano, which means that it is currently in a state of unrest.

Phivolcs said hydrothermal processes could generate more minor eruptions. 

The agency warned the public against entering the four-kilometer-radius permanent danger zone due to possibilities of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or minor ash eruptions.
