The Philippines has recorded more tremors beneath the Taal volcano island, keeping its warning that hazardous explosive eruption may happen within hours to days.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology recorded 486 volcanic earthquakes including four low-frequency ones in the past 24 hours. “Such intense activity likely signifies continuous magmatic intrusion beneath the Taal edifice, which may lead to further eruptive activity,” it said in its 8 a.m. report Friday.
