The majestic Mayon, the Philippines\' most active volcano near Legazpi City, Albay, spewed huge lava fragments rolling down its slopes in an ongoing gentle eruption that has prompted authorities to evacuate thousands of villagers, including farm animals and pets, Manila Bulletin reported.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) raised Alert Level 3 in Mayon – the third highest alert in a five-step scale – as it warned of a possible “hazardous eruption” within weeks. Phivolcs science research specialist Eric Arconado said the last time the alert status was raised to level 3 was in December 14, 2009.
