Mayon Volcano Erupts, Alert Level 4 Raised in Albay

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Mount Mayon Volcano in the Philippines is one of the most beautiful and active volcanoes in the world. Known for her perfectly shaped cone body. Mother Nature is truly spectacular!

Now that it is erupting, our message to our fellow Filipinos in the area; stay safe and God speed! Look after yourselves and the  animals too.

Governor Al Francis Bichara advises everyone to stay indoors especially to our friends in the third district of Albay. Classes are suspended in the whole of third district of Albay.

"Situated on the island of Luzon, about 330 kilometers (205 miles) southeast of Manila, Mayon is one of the world's most active volcanoes.

The volcano has erupted 47 times, with many of the explosions causing deadly mudflows and ash falls.

In 2013, five climbers died when they were hit by falling rocks thrown up by a particularly violent blast. In 2014, thousands of residents were ordered to evacuate after an alert was issued.

However, the volcano's most devastating eruption took place in 1814 when at least 1,200 people were killed."

Mayon Volcano is currently erupting or what media has been reprting as "fountaining" due to the fountain-like appearance it is showing especially at night. She is now currently erupting at one of the highest level 4 in the seismology scale.

The lava fountain reached about 700 metres into the sky and produced a 4 km-high ash plume. And it's not over yet.

It is undoubtedly an amazing site but scary and dangerous at the same time.

There are reports of ashes everywhere on the west side of Mayon specially at Camalig, Guinobatan, ligao, Oas, Polangui, etc.

The people of the Philippines face battles every day...two active volcanoes, cyclones/typhoons, floods, numerous bus, motorcycle and ferry accidents, traffic and public transportation problems, a volatile leader-- we deserve some good news.
