The Philippine Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has already made recommendations for authorities to evacuate the residents residing within a six-kilometer radius of the volcano.
Among the areas surrounding the volcano are Bacacay, Camalig, Daraga, Guinobatan, Malilipot, and Santo Domingo.
The cities of Legazpi, Ligao, and Tabaco likewise are in the surrounding area.
Volcanic eruptions are not common occurrences in the Philippines, which is why when alert levels go up, authorities are on high alert and evacuation always becomes an option. Mt. Mayon, aside from being active, is also considered a Philippine treasure.
One of the active volcanoes, which has shown signs of activity in recent years is Bulkang Taal. In 2022, despite the smaller explosions that it had, it remained under alert level 3. Based on Phivolcs, it took two months of observation of the volcano. It remained in level 3 due to the magmatic activity.
In another location, many residents were able to take videos of Mt. Bulusan in Sorsogon, when it blew thick smoke. It happened in June 2022. The smoke was detected around 10:30 a.m., and it lasted for about 20 minutes. According to Phivolcs, from alert level 0 or the normal level, it was raised to alert level 1 due to the detected activities.
