Residents evacuated amid Mount Mayon eruption warning

Philippines-volcano

The 6-km PDZ includes the barangays of Quirangay, Sua, Tumpa, and Tinubran in Camalig; Tandarora and Maninila in Guinobatan; Miisi, Budiao, and Matnog in Daraga; Calbayog and Canaway in Malilipot; Buang, Buhian, and Magapo in Tabaco City; and Baligang and Amtic in Ligao City.

Mayon, one of the most active volcanoes in the country, first spewed ashes, which reached 2.5 kilometers (1.5 miles) in a phreatic eruption, lasting for nearly two hours on Saturday afternoon.

The volcano has been displaying abnormal behavior since late past year.

It reported that at 10:50 a.m. a phreatic eruption occurred at 8:49 a.m., producing a grayish steam and ash plume and lasting for approximately five minutes.

Since the eruptions, a "faint crater glow" has been observed, while the "rockfall events have been intermittently recorded and are continuing" according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs).

"A sulfurous odor was [also] detected and rumbling sounds were heard by residents of Barangay Anoling, Camalig", Phivolcs said.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council activated all its municipal counterparts, especially in the third district of Albay province, the most affected by volcanic activity. This indicates pressurization of the edifice by rising magma or its perturbation of Mayon's subsurface hydrothermal system.

"Alert Level 2 remains in effect over Mayon Volcano, which means that the current unrest is probably of magmatic origin, which could lead to more phreatic eruptions or eventually to hazardous magmatic eruptions", it added.

It last erupted in 2014, spewing lava and forcing thousands of people to evacuate."The public is strongly advised to be vigilant and desist from entering the six kilometre radius Permanent Danger Zone to minimise risks from sudden explosions, rockfall and landslides", Phivolcs said.It advised people experiencing ashfall to cover their noses and mouths with a damp, clean cloth or dust mask.

A second ash eruption was recorded this morning, but Phivolcs has not yet raised the alert level any further. 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.
