Alert Level Raised to 2 After Filipino Volcano Mayon Spews Steam

Villages ordered evacuated after Mayon spews ash

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) recorded another phreatic eruption on Sunday morning at Mayon Volcano, Albay.

And just a few hours later, the threat was raised again from two to three as Phivolcs warned of "hazardous eruption" within weeks or days as Mayon Volcano has exhibited "high unrest" and its magma is at the crater.

This serves as a notice for the raising of Mayon Volcano's status from Alert Level 1 (abnormal) to Alert Level 2 (increasing unrest).

PHIVOLCS further said the public should refrain from entering the 6-kilometer radius of the Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ) to minimize risks from sudden explosions, rockfall, and landslides.

Saturday's eruption unleashed ash, rocks and sulfuric odor, and was followed by rumbling sounds and a faint glow in the crater, according to Phivolcs. Anoling, Camalig. Since the eruption, rockfall events have been intermittently recorded and are continuing as of the time of the release of this bulletin.

Mayon last erupted in 2014, with lava flows forcing thousands of people to evacuate.

Mayon's most destructive eruption was in February 1841, when lava flows buried a town and killed 1,200 people.

Residents have been urged to protect against inhaling the ash by wearing masks or covering their noses and mouths with damp cloths. Civil aviation authorities must also advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano's summit as ash from any sudden eruption can be hazardous to aircraft.

The authorities have warned people off a six-km radius around the volcano, and have issued a level 2 alert as concern grew over the possibility of stronger and more risky eruptions.

Albay Public Safety and Emergency Management Office head Cedric Daep announced the barangays in the towns of Daraga, Camalig, Guinobatan, Malilipot, Tabaco City, and Ligao City.

"Alert level 3 is what we considered critical, 4 is when eruption is imminent, and 5 is eruption in progress", he said, adding that people in evacuation centers may be allowed to return homes if Phivolcs does not raise the level.
