Philippines’ volcano started up

It is reporting that yesterday the most active Philippines’ volcano Mayon, 2,640-metre (8,070-foot) Mayon, located about 330 kilometres (200 miles) southwest of Manila, had been awoke and lava cascaded from the hill. The volcano’s world-renowned perfect cone appeared to have been deformed, swollen with lava that had risen from the Earth’s core.

Soldiers went from house to house asking residents to evacuate, after authorities on Monday raised the third highest alert in a five-step scale, meaning a full-scale eruption is possible “within weeks”. At least 8,000 of the target 50,000 people had been moved to temporary shelters, with the operation expected to run for three days, regional civil defence director Bernardo Alejandro told AFP.
