Recently, there is a simultaneous activity of Mt. Mayon, Mt. Taal, and Mt. Kanlaon. According to Maria Antonia Bornas, Chief Science Specialist of PHIVOLCS (Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology), simultaneous activity from three volcanoes are unusual.

However, as a general explanation, all three mountains are located within the Philippines’ “Pacific Ring of Fire,” an area known for its volcanic activity and seismic events. This region is where a large number of tectonic plates converge, leading to frequent volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.

It is not uncommon for multiple volcanoes in this region to be active at the same time, as they share a similar geological makeup and are affected by the same underlying forces. If there is an increase in seismic activity or other indications of volcanic unrest in one volcano, it may trigger similar activity in neighboring volcanoes.

That being said, it is important to remember that each volcano is unique, and the factors that drive its activity may differ from those influencing other volcanoes in the same region. Therefore, it is important to monitor the situation in each volcano carefully and take appropriate precautions as needed.
