The volcano could to be heading towards a new eruption. PHILVOLCS raised the alert level of the volcano was raised from 2 to 3 (on a scale of 1-5) on 15 Sep, following increased seismic activity and observation of small incandescent rockfalls on the southeastern upper flank. ...more [read all]
Sunday, Aug 17, 2014
A small lava dome is present at the top of the volcano. During a field survey on 12 August, PHIVOLCS scientists observed a new lava dome, approx. 30-50 m high. It is not known when exactly the dome had grown, but it seems likely that it was relatively recently. ...more [read all]

PHILVOLCS maintains alert level 1 for the volcano. No significant seismic activity is taking place, and no crater glow has been observed recently. Degassing is at normal levels, but ground deformation measurements show that the edifice is still slightly inflated compared to January 2010 baselines. ...more
Monday, Jun 03, 2013
The alert level for the volcano has been raised by PHILVOLCS. A weak incandescence is sometimes observed at the summit, and slight inflation has been detected, suggesting that magma has started to intrude into the volcanic edifice. ...more [read all]

A sudden (probably phreatic) powerful eruption from the summit crater occurred this morning and killed at least 5 people in camp #2 and wounded 15 others. ...more [read all]

Sunday, Jan 30, 2011
Weak activity is present at Mayon volcano's summit crater, where a red glow can be seen at night. Philvolcs reports that during 18-25 January 2011, up to two daily volcanic earthquakes were detected by the seismic network.
