#WalangPasok_Class suspensions for January 14, 2020

Local government units have suspended classes on January 14, 2020, Tuesday, due to ashfall brought by the recent eruption of the Taal Volcano.

In its bulletin issued at 4:00 PM, 13 January, PHIVOLCS said that after a brief waning of activity following lava fountaining at 2:49-4:28 AM today, Taal’s eruption resumed immediately with weak sporadic lava fountaining and hydrovolcanic activity at the Main Crater that generated steam-laden plumes approximately 2km tall.

“Now lateral vents were observed to have opened up on the northern flank where short 500m lava fountains emanate,” state seismology bureau added.

Since the last update, heavy ashfall from the ongoing eruptions of Taal has reportedly fallen southwest of the volcano island in Cuenca, Lemery, and Taal, Batangas.

The state seismology bureau said that the Philippine Seismic Network has recorded a total of 144 volcanic earthquakes in the Taal region since 1:00 PM, January 12, 2020. Forty-four of these earthquakes were felt with intensities ranging from Intensity I-IV in Tagaytay City; Alitagtag, Lemery, Santo Tomas, and Talisay, Batangas. Such intense seismic activity probably signifies continuous magma intrusion beneath the Taal edifice, which may lead to further eruptive activity
