DISCLAIMER: This article is actually based from the admin/blogger’s experience and observation. He resides more than ten kilometers from Mayon Volcano’s crater (He resides in Sto. Domingo, Albay).
Last January 13, the eruption of Mayon Volcano was started by puffing ashes which was the sign of raising the alert status from Alert Level 2 to Alert Level 3 and it was followed last January 15 by lava fountaining. Lava fountaining was happened again two days later.
Last Monday noon, January 22, the ashes puffing was happen and it caused ashfall in Guinobatan. So that the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) raised the alert level status to Alert Level 4. So that’s why the classes was suspended due to this disaster.
The following day, I captured some explosions at 9 am, 1 pm, and 6 pm (The 6 am and 9 pm eruption was not taken.) The following day, I didn’t see the explosions at 2 am (I think), 6 am (because I was sleep in that time), and the following 3-5 hours (due to cloudy weather).
More updates about Mayon’s eruption later. Stay tune for more updates.
