DOST-PHIVOLCS is raising to Alert Level 4 (Mayon Volcano) because the Danger Zone is extended to 8 kilometers radius from the summit vent. According to DOST-PHIVOLCS, the public is strongly advised to be vigilant and desist from entering this danger zone. Civil aviation authorities must also advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit, as ash from eruptions can be hazardous to aircraft.
PHIVOLCS maintains close monitoring of Mayon Volcano.
