"Now, magmatic emission (as large as Taal's) isn't yet anticipated. Be that as it may, phreatic or steam and debris ejections are conceivable. This is on the grounds that the fountain of liquid magma is comprised of hot materials. It could warm up its water sources and structure steam," she included.

At present, the breezes in the Visayas blow inside 20 to 30 kilometers for every hour, Eclarino included.

In the mean time, on account of a magmatic emission like that of Taal, Quintia stated: "Magma stream, pyroclastic thickness ebbs and flows, and lahar could be conceivable."

"PHIVOLCS has delivered peril maps which you can discover internet utilizing hazardhunterph. These risk maps find regions that are inclined to Kanlaon Volcano Hazards. Zones close to the well of lava, La Castellana, La Carlota, Bago City, Murcia, Moises Padilla, San Carlos City, and Canlaon City would be exceptionally influenced," Quintia included
