At least two volcanic quakes were recorded at restive Mayon Volcano in the last 24 hours, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said Thursday. In its 8 a.m. update, Phivolcs said it observed no steaming activity or crater glow Wednesday due to rain clouds covering the volcano's summit. But it said Mayon's alert status remains at Alert Level 3, meaning an eruption is possible at any time. More than 12,000 families were evacuated from their homes in Mayon's danger zone since mid-September, when Phivolcs raised the alert level at Mayon to 3. Last Nov. 3, the Office of Civil Defense allowed residents in the seven- to eight-kilometer extended danger zone to return home for now.
