    Thousands More Flee Philippines As Mayon Volcano Spews Lava Into Sky

    Over 21,000 villagers fled to safety early Tuesday when the Mayon Volcano, which was glowing red hot a few days ago, began spewing lava.  The eruption created a stunning visual display but prompted police to set up checkpoints to prevent tourists from getting to close to the dangerous volcano.

    According to CBS News, officials in the Philippines strongly advised people not to venture into a danger zone about 3.7 to 4.3 miles around Mayon, including residents who want to check their homes, farms and animals, and tourists seeking a closer view. “They say it’s beauty juxtaposed with danger,” Office of Civil Defense regional director Claudio Yucot said.

    The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said the lava flowed as much as 1.2 miles from the often cloud-shrouded crater of Mount Mayon, while ash fell on several villages in northeastern Albay province. At least 21,800 people have been displaced by Mayon’s eruption since the weekend, including more than 16,800 villagers who took shelter in 22 schools, Yucot said by telephone. Others took refuge in the homes of relatives.

    “We have witnessed lava fountaining yesterday, that’s why we have additional families who evacuated due to the threat,” said Romina Marasigan, spokeswoman of the government’s main disaster-response agency. Renato Solidum, who heads the volcanology institute, said the flows cascading down the volcano were not generated by an explosion from the crater with superheated lava, molten rocks and steam, but were caused by lava fragments breaking off from the lava flow and crashing on the lower slopes.

    Scientists have said that there have yet to be enough volcanic earthquakes to raise the alert level to five, meaning a violent explosive eruption is imminent.

    The Philippines lies in the so-called “Ring of Fire,” a line of seismic faults surrounding the Pacific Ocean where earthquakes and volcanic activity are common. In 1991, Mount Pinatubo in the northern Philippines exploded in one of the biggest volcanic eruptions of the 20th century, killing about 800 people.

      My BBR tuning stage 4 motorized bike kit came today. Great light weight put on bike rack back up get out of dodge thing? 3 horse power 100 miles per gallon, float carry across rivers? Pedals for extra power. Better then a moped? Will see?

      2 stroke guys . Red armor 2 stroke oil has great reviews.

    4. Plan twice, prep once says:

      I still want to see a thousand tons of popcorn and oil dropped into that volcano!

      There was actually a day when just for fun I could calculate how much popcorn and oil would be needed to absorb the thermal output of a volcano to neutralize an eruption.

    5. Yahooie says:

      At 8,000 feet tall, Mayon must certainly be a fearsome sight. Even Pinatubo before its eruption was only 5,725 feet. The only good thing is that this is on one of the larger islands of the Philippines so it’s not like people will lose their entire island and have nowhere to go. If homes are lost that will still be very hard for a generally poor population. Hope the volcano only puts on a show and then returns to dormancy.

    6. Wile e. Coyote says:

      I really could care less.

    7. This is off topic but the rural counties of California are trying to break off from California and leave only the urban counties. The same way West Virginia left Virginia.

    8. Sean says:

      Get your Google Earth screens going, there are eruptions all around the Pacific now, and some just starting to get there, here in the US, and elsewhere. Chile had a 7.+ a day or so ago, earthquake. With the sun not doing anything and being in a “sleep” kind of cycle, the earth and it’s magma is less influenced by the suns’ gravity and radiation. My greater fear is of the Caldera in Wyoming, and Japan.
