Mayon Volcano: Philippines raises alert level to 3 as fear of eruption magnifies | Oneindia News

Authorities in the Philippines have begun evacuating around 10,000 people living near the Mayon Volcano after volcanic earthquakes and hundreds of rockfall events were detected.

Mount Mayon is situated in the eastern province of Albay, some 330 kilometers south of the Filipino capital of Manila.

The Manila-based Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said that there is an "increased tendency towards a hazardous eruption" after the collapse of the summit dome.

The collapse has generated an increasing number and volume of rockfall events.

The officials have also raised the alert level for the region to Level 3 for Mayon volcano…one of the country’s most active volcanoes, after superheated streams of gas, debris and rocks cascaded down its upper slopein a condition they fear could lead to a hazardous eruption within days.

The 2,463-metre volcano“is exhibiting magmatic eruption”, the state volcanology agency said.

Mayon, a near-perfect cone, is considered one of the most volatile of the country's 24 active volcanoes.
