State volcanologists announced early Thursday morning, April 4 March, the Pinatubo in Zambales raised alert level 1 after observing “low-level unrest” “

Phivolcs stated that the Pinatubo Volcano Network has been operating since Nov. January “a total of 1Detected 722 imperceptible earthquakes under the Pinatubo building “

The first group of earthquakes from 20 until 26 January was between strength 1 and 25, at depths of 15 to 28 kilometers, according to Phivolcs

Then a “more persistent group of earthquakes” occurred 10 to 35 kilometers below the center of the building itself, with some shallower earthquakes at either end of the group, “Phivolcs said these were between magnitude 05 and magnitude 28

“Communities and local government units in the Pinatubo area are reminded to be prepared for earthquake and volcanic hazards and to review, prepare and strengthen their emergency, emergency and other disaster preparedness plans,” the agency said also
