  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 CO2 being released in the Main Crater Lake and increase in seismic activity. A noticeable increase in seismic network around Taal Volcano (14.0000°N, 120 .9833°E) recorded twenty (20) volcanic 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 CO2 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.
