The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) officials at 2:07 p.m. wendnesday are unable, reports say to take the right readings- “Cloud cover prevented us from getting an accurate picture of the ash it ejected. But this only shows that the volcano is still undergoing continuous activity,” Renato Solidum Jr., Phivolcs director, told TEMPO.
Per most reports In three days, ‘294 tremors’ or mild eathquakes and “7,629 tons of sulfur dioxide were emitted yesterday.”
Cload cover is part of the reason- a video from before the current state shows how difficult it is to clearly see activities in the area at times for the vulcanologists.
