SUMMARY

On 13 January 2018 at 4:21 PM, Mayon Volcano generated a phreatic eruption (steam-driven) that propelled a grayish steam and ash plume approximately 2500 m high that was drifted to the southwest. Based on seismic records the activity lasted approximately 1 hour and 47 minutes.

Since 1:00PM of January 22, 2018 to present, alert status is raised to level 4 (hazardous eruption imminent) by DOST-PHIVOLCS, due to the volcano’s phreatomagmatic eruption (increased seismic unrest, lava fountaining and summit explosion).
