Latest Update On Mayon Volcano Released By PHIVOLCS
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) has released the latest update regarding the situation of Mayon Volcano.
On Tuesday (January 30, 2018), the state volcanology agency Phivolcs announced that Mt. Mayon generates an energetic lava effusion with sporadic lava fountaining events last Monday evening (Jan 29).
The eruption cycle containing a large-volume lava collapse has started at 7:50 pm until 11:06 pm. The lava collapse fed pyroclastic density currents fed on the Miisi and Bonga Gullies.
The lava fountaining reached 200 meters high and produced ash plumes reaching about 1.5 kilometers above the crater, which was reportedly affected Camalig and Guinobatan, Albay.
Mt.Mayon still remains at alert level 4 prohibiting the public to enter the 8-kilometer-radius danger zone.
The residents living near the affected areas were advised to be vigilant against PDC events, lahars, and sediment-laden stream flows.
About 119 volcanic earthquakes, 68 rockfall events, nine tremor events, two lava fountaining, and two episodes of PDC generation from lava collapse.
