CAMALIG, Albay - President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo turned over today 250 certificates of ownership to residents of Barangay Tagaytay, which overlooks Mayon Volcano as part of the 30,000th-milestone celebration of the national government's Core Shelter Assistance Project (CSAP).

"I wish that your new permanent homes will be a signal for the better future to all of you," the President told settlers in her brief impromptu speech.

Assisting the President in the awarding of certificates were Albay Governor Joey Salceda, Albay 2nd District Representative Al Francis Bichara, …

At 9:12 A.M. today, Mayon Volcano manifested mild ash explosion that reached an approximate height of 200 m above the summit crater before drifting east-northeast. The ash-ejection was recorded as explosion-type earthquake which lasted for one minute by the seismic network deployed around the volcano.Immediately after the explosion, visual observation becomes hampered by the thick clouds.

In the first three days of March of 2007, Taiwan Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation (Tzu Chi) Philippines Branch carried out its 90th free medical mission in the Philippines. Tzu Chi Philippines volunteers went to Tabaco, Albay province, providing free medical services. Tabaco is one of the cities nearest to the volcano Mount Mayon.

27 Sep 2006 description

During the past 24-hours, Mayon Volcano's (13.2576'N, 123.6856'E) seismic network recorded seven (7) volcanic earthquakes and eighteen (18) tremor episodes. Intermittent discharge of incandescent lava fragments and intense glow from the crater were still observed from the summit. Steaming from the crater was moderate with white plumes drifting southwest. Measurement of Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emission rate was hampered due to heavy rains.

Mayon Volcano remains at a high level of unrest with fair probability for explosive eruptions.

25 Sep 2006 description

Mayon Volcano's (13.2576'N, 123.6856'E) seismic network detected fourteen (14) volcanic earthquakes and 114 tremor episodes during the past 24-hour observation period.

21 Sep 2006 description

Mayon Volcano's (13.2576'N, 123.6856'E) seismic network detected 3 volcanic earthquakes, 20 tremor episodes and continuous occurrence of low frequency harmonic tremor during the past 24 hour observation period. The Sulfur Dioxide emission rate of the volcanic plume was measured at 2,200 tonnes per day (t/d) compared to 1,200 t/d recorded the other day. Intermittent discharge and tumbling down of incandescent lava fragments from the summit characterized on-going surface activity.

LEGAZPI CITY, Philippines, Sept 13 (Reuters) - Zenaida Azores could not hide her joy, humming a tune while stuffing clothes into a bag as she and 30,000 others began to return home after the most active volcano in the Philippines quietened down.

The government has lowered the alert level around Mount Mayon in the central province of Albay after a 10-day fall in volcanic activity signalled an easing of two months of heavy rumbling and fears of an imminent eruption.

"We're so happy we could see our homes again," Azores told reporters as she got her two children ready for …

12 Sep 2006 description

Mayon Volcano's (13.2576°N, 123.6856°E) activity during the past 24 hours was dominated by 253 tremor episodes associated with lava chunks detaching from the summit crater and intermittent lava flow at the southeast flank of the volcano. No volcanic earthquake however, was recorded. The Sulfur Dioxide emission rate from the crater was maintained at 1,500 tonnes per day.

11 Sep 2006 description

In the past 24 hours, there were some 6 volcanic earthquakes and 206 tremor episodes detected. The Sulfur Dioxide emission rate from the crater was estimated at about 1,500 tonnes per day with plume drifts varying from northeast to east-northeast. Ground deformation measurements indicated an overall deflation of the edifice.

These observations generally show an elevated state of unrest, although there is an apparent decline of activity since late August.

09 Sep 2006 description

A total of two (2) volcanic earthquakes and 300 tremor episodes were detected in the past 24 hours. Measurements of Sulfur Dioxide emission rate decreased slightly to about 1,701 tonnes per day (t/d) yesterday from the previous 1,841 t/d. Steaming activity varied from moderate to voluminous with plume drifting north to northeast.

In summary, the continuing decline in key parameters such as seismic activity, Sulfur Dioxide emission rate and ground deformation may signify a slowdown in the volcano's activity.

08 Sep 2006 description

In the past 24 hours, some 26 volcanic earthquakes and 333 tremors episodes were detected. The Sulfur Dioxide emission rate from the crater was estimated at 1,841 tonnes per day with plume drifts varying from northwest to northeast. Continuing ground deformation measurements indicated an overall deflation of the edifice.

The foregoing observations generally show an elevated state of unrest, although a few parameters, such as the state of ground swelling and absence of explosions in the past days, may indicate a slowdown in activity.

For the past 24 hours, Mayon Volcano's (13.25760N, 123.68560E) seismic network detected ten (10) volcanic earthquakes and 315 tremor episodes. Ground deformation measurements showed general deflation of the volcanic edifice.

I. Situation Overview

ALERT LEVEL 4 is still in effect, which means that the 8-km radius Extended Danger Zone (EDZ) over the southeast should remain off-limits. For other areas around the volcano, the presently enforced EDZ is 7-kms from the summit.

A. Status of Evacuation Operations

The total number of evacuees coming from the 22 barangays of Sto. Domingo, Daraga, Camalig, Malilipot and Guinobatan and from the cities of Legaspi, Ligao and Tabaco has decreased from 6,566 families or 30,650 persons to 6,480 families or 30,237 persons.

Mayon Volcano's (13.2576oN, 123.6856oE) seismic network detected thirteen (13) volcanic earthquakes and 295 tremor episodes during the past 24 hours. The Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) flux of the volcanic plume was measured at 2,032 tonnes per day (t/d). Steam emission from the summit varied from weak to moderate and drifted to the west and west-southwest as observed during cloud breaks yesterday and early this morning.

Dear Colleagues,

05 Sep 2006 description

In the past 24 hours, Mayon Volcano's (13.2576oN, 123.6856oE) activity was dominated by continuous lava extrusion and spalling of lava fragments, which resulted in 455 tremor episodes. The main and presently active lava flow continues to override the Mabinit lava flow deposit, which was emplaced last July and early August. Between 700 to 800 meters elevation, portions of the front or toe of this lava flow splits and sheds lava fragments towards the general direction of Buyoan channel.

04 Sep 2006 description

Lava continued to ooze out of Mayon's summit crater (13.2576oN, 123.6856oE), which resulted in 305 tremor episodes for the past 24 hours. Lavas and the detaching lava blocks continuously cascaded towards the southeast sector of the volcano. Majority of the extruded lavas were observed overriding the Mabinit lava flow deposit and the rest were seen rolling down the Miisi and Buyoan channels. Eleven (11) volcanic earthquakes were also detected. These signify magma ascent and its degassing activity.
