Mayon Volcano these days had a lava flow. All through the previous weeks the volcano was alternatively peaceful, but this morning, the volcanologists noticed a lava circulation of about 350 meters from the summit.

Although politicians and the push designed a new sort of volcanic action, they simply call it “tender eruption“, PHIVOLCS printed quietly their day by day volcano update:
Visual and aerial observations this early morning found a short and stubby lava circulation close to 350m in length, gradually and quietly flowing down the eastern aspect of Bonga Gully along the southeast slope of Mayon Volcano (13.2500°N, 123.6833°E). The smaller range of volcanic earthquakes and rockfall activities for the past few days advise a sluggish motion of the lava move, and gradual extrusion of lava from the crater.
PHIVOLCS-DOST reiterates that Notify Degree 3 remains hoisted over Mayon Volcano. This signifies that magma is at the crater and that a harmful eruption is doable inside of weeks. It is recommended that the 6-km radius Long lasting Risk Zone (PDZ) close to the volcano and the 7-km Prolonged Danger Zone (EDZ) on the southeastern flank be enforced due to the risk of rock falls, landslides and sudden explosions or dome collapse that may possibly crank out hazardous volcanic flows. PHIVOLCS maintains close checking of Mayon Volcano and any new development will be communicated to all worried stakeholders.
We keep an eye on Mount Mayon and our family members in Bicol tell us by texts about any event.
