The Filipino who live within the vicinity of Mayon Volcano or Mount Mayon are in great danger as this nearly-perfect cone mount erupted last Tuesday. It spewed volcanic ashes and scorching lava. Thousands of those people were scrambling as the lava flowed up to more one mile from the crater. No injuries had been recorded. According to history, Mount Mayon's first recorded eruption was in 1616. And the most-deadly eruption happened in 1814, killing 1,200 people.

I am from Albay. People nowadays are more prepared when disaster came than it was before. The Local Disaster Risk and Reduction Management (LDRRM) Team in coordination with different groups are doing the necessary precautionary measures in order to keep the community safe. Everyone is safe. Actually, I want this activity to be a tourist attraction rather than a disaster. I am inviting you to visit Albay to see the beauty of Mayon.
