LEGAZPI CITY, Albay — Mayon Volcano spewed an ash column the height of up to three kilometers late Saturday afternoon, causing an ashfall in some nearby towns.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) Director Renato Solidum said the phreatic eruption or steam-driven explosion happened at 5 p.m.

Due to thick clouds, the crater and ash column was not visible but Phivolcs confirmed the column of ash went in the southwest direction.
Dr. Cedric Daep, Albay Public Safety and Emergency Management Office (APSEMO) chief, reiterated to The Manila Bulletin that human activities within Mayon’s six-kilometer permanent danger zone (PDZ) are prohibited.
The volcano has been placed on Alert Level 1 by the Phivolcs since November last year.
