The Palace is closely monitoring the situation of Taal Volcano.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has upgraded the Alert Status to Level 3, which means increasing the tendency towards an eruption.

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte has already given instructions to undertake measures necessary to place the people within the perimeter of Taal out of the danger zone.

Concerned agencies of the national government are now working closely with the Provincial Government of Batangas to ensure the safety of the residents, including their evacuation.

We advise the public to continue to remain vigilant.

Salvador S. Panelo

Chief Presidential Legal Counsel
