Quake causes cracks,
landslide at Kanlaon


Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology experts have been asked to assess the damage caused by the magnitude 6.9 earthquake on Kanlaon Volcano following large cracks discovered at its crater, and a landslide at Margaha Valley, Mt. Kanlaon Natural Park superintendent Cecil Cañada said yesterday.

Ma. Antonia Bornas, chief of thePHIVOLCVS Science Research Specialist Volcano Monitoring and Eruption Prediction Division, said they need to verify the report through an aerial survey.moremoremore
