Philippines volcano eruption likely soon


www.cnn.com

(CNN) -- Philippine authorities on Sunday raised the alert status of the country's most active volcano to level 4 and established an extended danger zone around it, saying an eruption is imminent.

The status change at the Mayon volcano "means that a hazardous explosive eruption is possible within days," according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

Earlier Sunday, the institute said the central Philippine volcano continues "to exhibit a high level of activity," adding that 222 volcanic quakes and tremors have been recorded in recent days. "an explosio

VOLCANO ALERT LEVELS
Level O: No alert
Level 1: Abnormal
Level 2: Increasing unrest
Level 3: Increased tendency toward eruption
Level 4: Hazardous eruption imminent
Level 5: Hazardous eruption


It has raised an alert level sense last week. I previously posted a thread on this, but this is an update.

"One was "an explosion-type earthquake" that launched a cloud of ash about 1,640 feet (500 meters) into the air, according to an institute statement.

The institute recommended extending already-established danger zones of nearly five miles (8 kilometers) south of the summit and 4.3 miles (7 kilometers) north of the summit."

I'm not sure how they define eruption but since I have seen pictures of lava already flowing Id say they are a bit late.

Gonna be cool show when/if it becomes bigger.

They're expecting an explosive eruption, not just lava.





Previous eruptions of the same volcano.

I was looking for a webcam of it earlier and the one I found wouldnt connect. I read somewhere else that the ONE webcam is turned off at midnight on sat or something and doesnt come back online until mon. This is every week.

edit: Wrong time to be saving a little power IMO.

Could you post the link up? I think that would be interesting.

Why would you build homes near a volcano anyway? It's their own damn fault.

That is an ignorant post. Why would you build a home in Hawaii, or Alaska, or by Mt. St. Helens? Sometimes the benefits outweigh the risks.

MAYON satalite cam

For all of you looking for a cam of Mayon, the only thing I could find is a live satellite cam from space. It is updated every 30 minutes . So when you see the huge plume , that means it went.

Pyroclastic flows from a collapsed eruption column will be the thing Volcanologists will be looking out for immediately after the initial eruption. The fact theres been so many Harmonic Tremors suggests the material under Mayon is about the same consistency as Mt.Pinatubo. This Eruption sent out a Pyroclastic column 35k outwards from the Volcano and sent the Ash-cloud upwards in excess of 50,000ft.

Incidentally this is what a VEI6 eruption looks like (Pinatubo in 1991.)

And what a 2 mile high Pyroclastic flow looks like from 10 miles away when its coming at you the same speed as a jet.
