VolcanoPH Info goes live!

In a statement posted on its website, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said it introduced the mobile app, together with the Department of Science and Technology, on June 21 in celebration of its 69th Founding Anniversary.

The mobile app, which is available for Android users, delivers the latest volcano bulletins and advisories.

According to Phivolcs, this will help the users understand the current volcano status, and identify the necessary preparedness and response actions for their safety.

We aim to provide the users with accessible and easy-to-read information. Through this platform, we will be able to reach our clients better and faster, said DOST Undersecretary and PHIVOLCS Officer-in-Charge Renato Solidum Jr.

Phivolcs explained that users can select from the list of volcanoes with alert levels on the homepage. After clicking on a particular volcano, they will be provided with a summary of the 24-hour observation period containing the alert level, monitoring parameters, and recommendations in the Filipino language.

They can view the volcanic earthquakes for the past two weeks, and access volcano advisories and additional information such as alert level scheme, bulletin archive, volcano hazard maps, volcano preparedness guide, and glossary of terms.

Filipinos may expect updates on the app such as allowing to change the language setting to English. The mobile app will soon be available to iOS devices.
