Restive Mayon Volcano has recorded an increase in sulfur dioxide emission but this is no cause for alarm, according to the head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).
In the 24-hour observation period of Phivolcs on Mayon Volcano released at 8 a.m. Sunday, the volcano in Legaspi, Albay had 752 tons per day sulfur dioxide emission — more than double of its 362 tons/day emission on August 21.
Mt. Mayon in August 20 and 19 recorded just 248 tons/day and 210 tons/day sulfur dioxide emission, respectively.
“We can’t say it is worsening (condition of Mt. Mayon). The increase in the sulfur dioxide is above normal but not significant,” Phivolcs Director Dr. Renato Solidum said.
