Mayon Volcano is already Erupting!!
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippines' most active volcano oozed lava and shot up plumes of ash Tuesday, forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes and face the possibility of a bleak Christmas in a shelter.

State volcanologists raised the alert level on the cone-shaped, 8,070-foot (2,460-meter) Mayon volcano overnight to two steps below a major eruption after ash explosions.

Dark orange lava fragments glowed in the dark as they trickled down the mountain slope overnight. Renato Solidum, head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, said the activity could get worse in coming days.

"It's already erupting," Solidum told The Associated Press.

More than 20,000 people were evacuated to safety by nightfall Tuesday, said Gov. Joey Salceda of Albay province, where Mayon is located about 210 miles (340 kilometers) southeast of Manila.

The first of 20 vehicles, including army trucks, were sent to villages to take residents to schools and other temporary housing, provincial emergency management official Jukes Nunez said.

"It's 10 days before Christmas. Most likely people will be in evacuation centers, and if Mayon's activity won't ease down we will not allow them to return to their homes," Nunez said. "It's difficult and sad, especially for children."

Re: Mayon Volcano is already Erupting!!
Mayon has a history of eruptions stating in this fashion and then going on to Plinian Eruptions, im guessing as it is currently at level 4 (of 5 scale) They are thinking it might well go Plinian.
Cheers.

Nah, no more than 4 at the most. I havent found any info suggesting Mayon has Erupted at anything higher than VEI4 =, most death from Mayon tend to come from Lahars.
Cheers.

Unlikely, all you have to do it look at Mayon, its shape is beautiful for a volcano, any Volcano that has that shape is unlikely to be VEI 7 capable.
