  1. SITUATION OVERVIEW

Alert Level 2 is hoisted over Taal Volcano, with the interpretation that magma has been intruding towards the surface as manifested by CO 2 being released in the Main Crater Lake and increase in seismic activity. The seismic network around Taal Volcano recorded sixteen (16) earthquakes during the past 24 hours. Water Temperature at the Main Crater Lake slightly increased from 29.8°C to 30.1°C.
The large increase of CO 2 concentration indicates gas release from the magma at depth. Result of the ground deformation survey (precise levelling) conducted around the Volcano Island showed that volcano edifice is slightly inflated.
