Philippines raises volcano alert level as eruptions spew ash

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.

The Mayon volcano in the Philippines has spewed ash several times over the weekend, forcing authorities to evacuate two villages in its vicinity and raise the threat level, warning of potential "hazardous magmatic eruptions".

Mountain Mayon, one of the Philippines' most active volcanos famous for its beauty and near-perfect symmetry, is in Albay province on the main Luzon Island more than 300 km southeast of the Philippines capital Manila.

Gomez said of the 665 families and 2,287 persons, 475 families or 1,576 persons were brought to Guinobatan Elementary Central School; 98 families or 343 persons to Cabangan Elementary School; and 92 families or 368 persons to Anoling Elementary School.

Prior to this phreatic eruption, Mayon's edifice has undergone inflationary changes or a slight swelling of the edifice as indicated by ground deformation data recorded by continuous Global Positioning System and tilt since October and November 2017, respectively. "The communities there were already reminded that when it comes to these activities, they should evacuate immediately", she said.

The evacuation process when it comes to volcanic eruptions is a "little longer" comparedto that enforced when it involves typhoons.

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.

"The Phivolcs can not say how long the evacuees should stay in the evacuation centers because it might take weeks and it [decision] will always depend on the activity of Mayon Volcano", she added.

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

Earlier, the second phreatic eruption occurred also yesterday at 8:49 a.m., which lasted approximately for five minutes. It was followed by rumbling sounds and a faint glow in the crater, Phivolcs said.

On Sunday morning, Phivolcs said two more steam-driven ash explosions were recorded, producing grayish steam and ash plume.
