The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has lowered the alert level for Mayon from 2 (‘moderate unrest’) to the lowest level of 1 (‘no eruption imminent’). Seismic activity at Mayon is well within normal parameters, there is little or no evidence of magmatic movement within the volcano, deformation measurements indicate deflation, sulphur dioxide emissions and steam emissions are normal, and crater glow indicates no intensification of activity. The Phivolcs Mayon bulletin for 2 March 2010 gives the details, along with a warning that there is a continuing danger from sudden small explosions and rockfalls within the 6-km-radius permanent danger zone around the volcano.
