In its latest Taal bulletin, the state seismologist reported that Taal Volcano emitted 2,887 tonnes per day of sulfur dioxide along with the upwelling of hot volcanic fluids and vog.

The volcano also discharged a plume that reached 2,400 meters tall before it drifted in a west and southwest direction.

No volcanic earthquake were recorded.


Phivolcs posted a 12-second time-lapse snapshot of the "degassing from the Taal Main Crater and volcanic smog or vog formation" that was taken from 5:45 AM to 11:42 AM on Sunday, Oct. 8.

Taal volcano remained under Alert Level 1 which means it is exhibiting a low level of volcanic unrest.
