14 Jun 10 - The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Tuesday that  the situation at Taal Volcano is alarming, and that an Alert Level 2 remains in effect. An Alert Level 2 means the volcano is undergoing magmatic intrusion which could eventually lead to an eruption.

Phivolcs said it has recorded seven volcanic quakes Monday night  until early morning Tuesday, with the strongest recorded at 6 a.m.

Taal Volcano is located on the island of Luzon in the Philippines about 31 miles (50 km) from Manila. It consists of an island in Lake Taal, which is situated within a caldera formed by an earlier, very powerful eruption.

Part of the Pacific ring of fire, Taal Volcano has erupted violently many times, causing major loss of life in areas surrounding the lake. Though there
have been 33 recorded eruptions at Taal since
1572, it has been relatively quiet since 1977.
