Cabagnaan, La Castellana, Sitio Guintubdan, Brgy. Ara-al and Brgy. Yubo, La Carlota City. From the southeastern side of the volcano, the eruption plume was observed through cloud cover to have reached 1000m above the active crater, although it may have lofted as high as 4500m above the summit based on pilot reports. Traces of light ashfall were reported in Sitio Guintubdan, Brgy. Ara-al, and Brgy. La Granja, La Carlota City and reached as far as the Municipality of Pontevedra, Negros Occidental.

Alert Level 1 status remains in effect over Kanlaon Volcano, which means that it is at an abnormal condition and is in a period of current unrest. The local government units and the public are reminded that entry into the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) is strictly prohibited due to the further possibilities of sudden and hazardous steam-driven or phreatic eruptions. Civil aviation authorities must also advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as airborne ash from a sudden eruption can be hazardous to aircraft. DOST-PHIVOLCS is closely monitoring Kanlaon Volcano’s activity and any new development will be relayed to all concerned.

Karymsky, Kamchatka:


54.049°N, 159.443°E
Elevation 1513 m

KVERT reported that moderate explosive activity at Karymsky continued during 11-18 December. Satellite images detected a thermal anomaly on 14 December. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.




Karymsky, the most active volcano of Kamchatka’s eastern volcanic zone, is a symmetrical stratovolcano constructed within a 5-km-wide caldera that formed during the early Holocene. The caldera cuts the south side of the Pleistocene Dvor volcano and is located outside the north margin of the large mid-Pleistocene Polovinka caldera, which contains the smaller Akademia Nauk and Odnoboky calderas. Most seismicity preceding Karymsky eruptions originated beneath Akademia Nauk caldera, located immediately south. The caldera enclosing Karymsky formed about 7600-7700 radiocarbon years ago; construction of the stratovolcano began about 2000 years later. The latest eruptive period began about 500 years ago, following a 2300-year quiescence. Much of the cone is mantled by lava flows less than 200 years old. Historical eruptions have been vulcanian or vulcanian-strombolian with moderate explosive activity and occasional lava flows from the summit crater.
