Mayon Volcano On Alert Level 3: Forced Evacuation Ordered

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PhiVocs) has raised Mayon volcano's alert level to 3 which means "increased tendency towards eruption".

Because of this the local government of Albay issued a force evacuation of the 6-8 kilometer danger zone Monday night. Since Monday morning  PhiVocs has recorded six small ash explosions and at around 6pm Monday lava has started to flow from the crater. Check the break for the latest update from TV Patrol.
