Kanlaon Volcano remains under a period of unrest with its volcanic gas emissions still at a very  high level,  a  Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs)  volcanologist said on Sunday, June 30., 

The volcanic sulfur dioxide (SO2) gas emission from the summit crater of Kanlaon remained  at 5,397 tons, its highest recorded level, Mari-Andylene Quintia, Phivolcs resident volcanologist based in La Carlota City, Negros Occidental, said. 

She said the volcano will remain  under Alert Level 2 until it parameters drop. 

The volcanic sulfur dioxide gas emission of Kanlaon was 300 tons a day, so 5,397 tons is way above normal, she said.

Although there were no outward manifestations of an eruption, she said increasing unrest at Kanlaon remained. 

There were 14 volcanic earthquakes reported at Kanlaon on Sunday, and its volcanic edifice remained inflated.*
