- The province of Albay has been declared in a state of calamity due to the possible violent volcanic activity of Mount Mayon
- It has been a week or so since the volcano manifeted an intense volcanic activity
- Tremors associated with the activity of the volcano had been recorded to occur 49 times
Albay City is now under a state of calamity after days of aggressive volcanic activity.
According to PHILVOCS, there were at least 49 tremors recorded overnight which was caused by the intense volcanic activity.
Pyroclastic flows and ash clouds emission were also recorded. The fountaining and flowing of lava is becoming more intense.
One of the streams of lava was flowing for an estimated two kilometers down the slope of the volcano.
In a report by interaksyon.com, KAMI learned that according to resident volcanologist Ed Laguerta, the behavior of the lava flow indicates that the molten material is being pushed out the crater by inner forces and that much of the magma being exuded is liquid in state;
“If there are significant amounts of gaseous material inside, then we could be in for a violent gas-driven explosion and discharge of ash and smoke and pyroclastic material.”
Though Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHILVOLCS ) has been closely monitoring the Mayon volcano, it is not yet possible to have an accurate forecast of when the eruption is going to happen or is it really gonna happen.
According to officers of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) the state if technology so far does not allow accurate forecast of when the imminent eruption is going to be, if it is forthcoming at all.
“There can be no definite forecast,” added Laguerta.
Mayon Volcano or Mount Mayon, is an active stratovolcano in the province of Albay in Bicol Region in the Philippines.
Known for its "perfect cone", the volcano and its surrounding landscape was declared a national park on July 20 of 1938.
Mayon is the most active volcano in the Philippines, erupting over 51 times in the past 400 years.
