Rumbling Mayon spews more ash after lava flows

IN MANILA PHILLIP – The Mayon Volcano spewed ash for the second time in as many days on Tuesday, as tens of thousands were evacuated ahead of possible hazardous eruption.

Rumbling sounds echoed as a thick pillar of smoke and ash billowed from the mouth of the volcano, after it spewed lava overnight.

The second highest alert in a five-step warning system was raised over Mayon on Monday, which means a hazardous eruption is imminent. At least 40,000 residents have been evacuated in nearby towns.

The volcano sprayed jets of lava from its near-perfect cone on Monday night. This was due to the rapid formation and expansion of gas bubbles in the molten rock, according to Phivolcs.
