On January 12, 2020, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PhiVolcs) hoisted Alert level 2 over Taal Volcano after a phreatic eruption. In a span of five hours and after magmatic activities, it was escalated to alert level 4 which means that hazardous explosive eruption is imminent within hours or days.
As of January 26, the volcano’s status has been lowered to Alert level 3, which means there is a decreased tendency towards hazardous eruption.
