20 Apr 11 - More people have been evacuated from towns and villages near Taal volcano, where seismologists have recorded 13 volcanic earthquakes in the past 24 hours.

Intensity 3 and Intensity 1 volcanic earthquakes were felt in two villages near Taal Volcano, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) reported.

Phivolcs said that at least one of the tremors was accompanied by rumbling sounds, and that temperatures in the main crater lake had increased from 30.5C (86.9F) to 31.5C (88.7F).

The edifice has experienced slight inflation since the last measurements in February, and now stands at Alert Level 2, meaning that "magma has been intruding towards the surface."

Meanwhile, Phivolcs recorded two volcanic earthquakes in the last 24 hours at Bulusan Volcano in Sorsogon on Luzon Island, along with moderate steaming on the northwest vent and very weak steaming at the southeast vent. Bulusan's status remains at Alert Level 1.
