“Restive Mayon Volcano in Albay showed signs of increased activity with 15 volcanic quakes in the last 24 hours, state volcanologists said Sunday.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) also noted one rockfall-related event and moderate steam emission in the same time period.

‘Mayon Volcano’s seismic network recorded 15 volcanic earthquakes and one rockfall-related event during the past 24 hours. Moderate emission of white steam that reached a maximum height of 400 meters above the summit crater was observed drifting west–southwest and southwest,’ it said in its Sunday update.

Phivolcs also said a crater glow was observed at Intensity II (can be seen by the naked eye) Saturday night.”  Read more.
