Mayon Volcano is errupting

Mayon Volcano is actually one of Philippines’ active volcano, but not as devastating as Mt. Pinatubo. Now it is already erupting and is showing signs of another major erruption.

Alert level on the cone-shaped, 8,070-foot (2,460-meter) was already been announced. It overnight to two steps below a major eruption after ash explosions. Mayon is located about 210 miles (340 kilometers) southeast of Manila. As always, dark orange lava glowed in the dark. It could get worse in the coming days, according to Mr. Renato Solidum, head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

As precautionary measures, more than 20,000 people were evacuated as of 15 December 2009.

Many local folks may celebrate Christmas in evacuation center as it is already 9 days before the 25December 2009. Residents in Albay (near to the volcano) are used to it every time Mayon erupts. Anyway, no amount of calamity would stop Filipinos from celebrating the most awaited holiday in the land… what else but Christmas! Let me end by recommend below video link:
