Phivolcs: Another phreatic eruption recorded on Mayon Featured

Mount Mayon erupts in Legazpi City Philippines

Phivolcs has now raised the alert to level 2, which means that the current activity is probably of magmatic origin, which could lead to more phreatic eruptions or eventually to hazardous magmatic eruptions.

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

Since the eruptions, a "faint crater glow" has been observed, and dramatic images sent in to Express.co.uk show a bright red light being emitted from the mountain.

A sulfuric odor and traces of ash were found on Camalig, Albay after the eruption.

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.

Mayon volcano in Albay province spewed a smoke cloud on Sunday for the third time in less than 24 hours, state seismological office Phivolcs said as hundreds of residents fled to safer ground.

The public is strongly advised to be vigilant and desist from entering the 6k-radius Permanent Danger Zone to minimise risks from sudden explosions, rockfall and landslides, Phivolcs said.

University of Calgary says it's 'not safe' for Connor Neurauter on campus
But for now, the U of C has no way to outright expel Neurauter, since he wasn't a student when he committed the 2016 offence. This has been a nightmare for our family, one that none of us, but particularly our children, are equipped to handle.

On Saturday, residents of Camalig town proper smelled sulfur, while those from Anoling, Daraga heard rumbling sounds, PHIVOLCS added. It last erupted in 2014, spewing lava and forcing thousands of people to evacuate.

"In case of ash fall events, which are most likely to affect communities on the western and southwestern flanks downwind of Mayon's crater, people should cover their nose and mouth with damp, clean cloth or dust mask", PHIVOLCS said.

People living outside the danger zone but on the slopes of volcano were warned to take precautions against potential roof collapses due to the weight of ash and rainfall.

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.

We have not reached the critical level, he said in a radio interview.

Under Alert Level 3, the extension of danger zone in the sector where the crater rim is low will be considered.
