Here’s closeup footage of the crater of Taal Volcano! “What a terrible thing you did.. You even beat PHIVOLCS”, according to a viral Facebook post.
The identity of the men who took the video is still unknown.
Taal Volcano is still under alert level 4, which means a “hazardous volcanic eruption is possible within hours to days.”
In the past 24 hours, the volcano’s main crater emitted plumes of steam as far as 500 meters in the air and sulfur dioxide measured at 141 tons.
Data from the Philippine Seismic Network (PSN) showed that some 731 volcanic earthquakes were plotted in the Taal region since Jan. 12. Among these, some 176 were felt, ranging from between Magnitude 1.2 and 4.1 and experienced at between Intensity 1 and 4.
