  • Over 11000 Displaced By Volcano Eruption In Philippines Return Home – Officials

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) has raised alert level 4 over Albay province following the eruption.

Monday's explosion was the most powerful since the volcano began spewing smoke and lava a week ago.

Volcanic ash and deadly debris lingered roughly three kilometers, or 1.8 miles, around the southern plank of Mount Mayon near the no-entry danger zone. "Prepare either gas masks, handkerchiefs or cloths to prevent inhalation of fine ash", Solidum said. Lava has been seen flowing down from the crater since last week.

Emmanuel Macron: French would 'probably' vote to leave EU
He also said that while he respected the result of the June 23 referendum, he would "love" to welcome the United Kingdom back. Macron says the border issue "is a common challenge and we shall succeed together".

Mayon Volcano is erupting nearly every year since 2006.

Bichara also announced on Facebook the suspension of classes in all levels in both private and public schools across Albay.

"If the eruption is vertical it's possible pyroclastic flows or pyroclastic density currents may cascade down in all directions", the country's chief vulcanologist, Renato Solidum, said. The status is a step below Level 5, indicating a hazardous eruption.

Several hours before placing the volcano under alert level four, the Phivolcs indicated that 500-meter to 200-meter high lava fountains were generated at 10:45 p.m. local time on Sunday and 2:25 a.m. local time on Monday respectively. There is magma beneath the volcano, which might be erupted.

Salceda said there's a need for steady supply of relief goods - food items and drinking water - especially since no one can tell when the calamity would end, as in the past Mayon eruptions when evacuees stayed for months in evacuation centers.

More than 24,000 residents were still staying at evacuation centres in seven towns and cities at the foot of Mayon, according to the national disaster relief agency. Marasigan said it could be weeks before families can return to their homes. The new development at Mayon comes after Legazpi residents were allowed to return to their homes on Thursday.
