Will Mayon Volcano Erupt?

Mayon VolcanoLet's hope that it doesn't erupt, but if you'd like to know the latest updates, check out the following: Google News, Yahoo! News (see also images), and Topix.net.

You may also wish to keep your eyes on the websites of the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) and Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), which includes information on the physical characteristics of Mayon Volcano and even the populations of the municipalities around it. There is also a list of all active volcanoes in the Philippines.

Finally, try to remember that there are human beings around the volcano, who may not necessarily flee for various reasons. Some have actually traveled to Albay because of Mayon's impending eruption. As Minette of A Wonderful Life says, "It's really such a spectacular sight when you get to see it up close especially at night. I watched, just like the other locals and tourists, mesmerized by its beauty and oblivious to the danger it poses."
