Taal volcano’s eruption in Philippines may last weeks
Topics: TAAL VOLCANO PHILIPPINES
Renato Solidum, head of the Philippines' seismological agency, said Taal's previous eruptions have gone on for as long as months so it is impossible to predict an end to the current activity.
The warning of a potentially catastrophic "explosive eruption" may remain in place for weeks, depending on developments, he said.
“We have a protocol of waiting for several days, sometimes two weeks, to make sure that indeed volcano activity has essentially stopped," he noted. ■
