On July 1, the Philippine Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) declared Alert Level 3 after Taal Volcano ejected a one-kilometer plume of steam and magma. Several of these “short-lived” phreatomagmatic eruptions followed after, prompting PHIVOLCS to remind the public that the entire Taal Volcano island is currently a “Permanent Danger Zone.”


Apart from a high alert posted, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported on July 6 that more than 1,900 families, or 6,580 persons, from the 77 barangays in the province of Batangas were affected. Among these include the towns of Taal, Lemery, Agoncillo, Balete, Cuenca, Talisay, Tanauan, Laurel, Mataasnakahoy, and San Nicolas.
