Manila, June 14 (QNA) - Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology announced on Tuesday that more than 60 volcanic earthquakes were recorded in Mount Bulusan, southeast of Manila.
During the past 24 hours, 69 volcanic earthquakes were recorded, in addition to 56 tremors that lasted 19 minutes, the Institute said. Ash plumes reached a height of 750 metres.
The Institute pointed out that sulfur dioxide emissions were recorded, amounting to 4,627 tons last Sunday.
Mount Bulusan is the highest peak in Sorsogon province and covers an area of 3,672 hectares. The last eruption of the volcano was in 2017.
The Philippines is witnessing frequent volcanic and seismic activity due to its location on the "Ring of Fire" in the Pacific Ocean, where tectonic plates intersect. (QNA)
