PIA Press Release

Bulusan spews more ash

Manila (10 November) -- Volcanic activities continue to take place at Mount Bulusan in Sorsogon.

Philippine Volcanology and Seismology (PHILVOCS) reported that at 3:00 p.m. Tuesday, November 9, 2010, Bulusan ejected volcanic ash as high as 800 meters, and spewed another as high as 100 meters at 3:45 p.m. Eight volcanic earthquakes were likewise monitored.

Records show at the National Disaster Risk Reduction & Management Council (NDRRMC) that at least 34 families or 205 persons have already been evacuated from Casiguran, Sorsogon since Sunday, November to evacuation centers Escuala Elementary School and San Juan Elementary School.

The members of the council and its local counterpart are now taking necessary actions and precautionary measures to mitigate the effects of a possible bigger volcanic activity. The social welfare department has provided 600 pieces of dust masks to Casiguran government from its stockpile of 1,088 family packs; food worth P103,750; and non-food worth P 15,783,753.73 of relief commodities.

For its part, the local government of Casiguran has already distributed to the evacuees relief assistance worth P10,000 in the form of family packs containing one and a half kilos of rice, two cans of sardines, and two packs of noodles.

The Alert Level #1 earlier declared by PHILVOCS has remained in force, reiterating that the four-kilometer Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) around Bulusan mountain is off limit to the public. People who are living near the streams and valleys are also reminded to be vigilant against sediment-laden stream flows in the event of continuous rainfall.

The area near the mountain summit is still a no-flying zone to aircrafts. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
