“The public is reminded that the entire Volcano Island is a Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) and entry into the island as well as high-risk barangays of Agoncillo and Laurel is prohibited.
“In addition, communities around the Taal Lake shore are advised to take precautionary measures and be vigilant of possible lake water disturbances related to the ongoing unrest.”
PHIVOLCS officer-in-charge Renato Soldium told CNN Philippines: “Magma is intruding from below. If eventually, this will continue to move up, then there can be a magmatic eruption which is more dangerous.
“The volcano is inside a bigger crater or basin or bowl, which is why people would have to evacuate horizontally and away from the crater.
“There is water that would be hindering the rapid evacuation and that is why people need to get out of the island as soon as possible.”
