Mayon Volcano generated steam driven eruptions on 13-14 January, that ejected ash and sulphur fumes accompanied by rumbling sounds. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) raised the alert to level-3 due to a relatively high level of unrest and the increasing possibility of a hazardous eruption within weeks or even days. On 15 January, rock falls, lava and pyroclastic flows along two kilometers of the volcano’s gullies are results of the lava dome collapsing.
Since 1 January, more than 1,000 people have been displaced from Nangarhar to Kabul. Military operations in Kapisa reportedly also displaced 2,000 people within the province, while nearly 1,000 people from three neighboring provinces were also displaced into Kapisa. In 2017, more than 448,000 people were displaced due to conflict in Afghanistan, an average of more than 1,200 people every day. The highest number of displaced people was recorded in Nangarhar Province (123,538 IDPs), followed by Kunduz (39,550 IDPs) and Badghis (26,659 IDPs).
