Mayon Volcano Threatens to Erupt

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Philippines' Mayon volcano is putting on a spectacular show as it threatens to erupt.

But don't get us wrong, there is true danger to this development.

It's been 14 years since the last time we saw Mayon's crater glow. Still breathtaking, literally and figuratively.

We have to ask "How can be something be so beautiful and be so dangerous at the same time?"

On 1814, Mayon Volcano erupted and buried the town of Cagsawa with tephra, with ash accumulating to 9 m (30 ft) in depth. It buried the Cagsawa church leaving only the belfry visible. 2,200 locals perished in what is considered to be the most lethal eruption in Mayon's history.

In Albay, they also have this so called legend entitled The Legend of Daragang Magayon and Panganoron. I mentioned it because in some photos showing the lava flow at night, images show what looks like Panganoron is kissing Magayon (Mayon) to calm her down.

Even how fierce and dangerous Mayon is, Panganuron never left her side.

Mayon is truly the epitome of a woman. She's so beautiful and majestic but she can be so dangerous too.

Let's start praying for our fellow Bicolanos residing near it. Mayon Volcano is now on Alert Level 3. I hope everyone evacuated already. It has become dangerous for the people to remain at their homes.

Albay Gov. Al Francis Bichara has suspended all classes since January 15, in schools within the villages where residents were displaced and in schools used as evacuation centers. This means children missing their lessons again, another harm brought about by such an impending wrath of nature.

Authorities led by PhiVolcs warn an explosive eruption is possible "within days or weeks." The seemingly perfect cone-shape has been deformed already due to magma flow.

There are circulating reports telling that Mayon volcano could possible make the West Valley Fault in Metro Manila move, inducing fear among many people, especially that an earthquake was felt in the metro a few days ago.

Well, maybe Mayon is just a strong independent volcano that kept silent all these years but grew tired of all the disrespectful jerks climbing up her business and making decisions about her body as if they own her.

Keep safe everyone. Just like before, its eruption would cause a significant impact to all, especially those within its vicinity.
