Mayon Volcano - US Embassy Warden Message


The U.S. Embassy informs American Citizens in the Philippines to avoid the summit area of the Mayon Volcano, located in the Province of Albay, approximately 300 kilometers (186.41 miles) southeast of Manila, on the island of Luzon. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) raised its alert status for the Mayon Volcano to Alert Level 3 indicating relatively high and increasing volcanic unrest, which raises the likelihood of an eruption within days to weeks. This alert status strictly restricts entry within 6 kilometers, called the "Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ)," of the summit area. The danger zone was lengthened to 7 kilometers on the southeast portion of the volcano facing the Bonga Gully. PHIVOLCS also said that if tremors continued, there was a possibility of the alert level being raised to Alert Level 4, which signifies intense volcanic unrest leading to the possibility of hazardous explosive eruptions within hours or days.

Updated information on volcanoes in the Philippines is available on the Web sites listed below. The Embassy encourages all Americans residing in or visiting areas near volcanoes to consult these websites frequently and to adhere to all safety instructions from Philippine authorities.
