The next few days will be critical for Mayon volcano as it may erupt within the week.
According to PHIVOLCS, due to its continuous emission of smoke, this is a clear indication that it may erupt soon.
Alert level 3 is raised all around the volcano, but it could reached to alert level 4 if there’s a big chance that it will erupt.
Even Albay Governor Jose Salcedo believes that Mayon is a ticking time bomb waiting to explode.
Old residents of Albay who have indigenous knowledge say that the volcano will erupt too.
They are constantly monitoring the situation within the surrounding area of Mayon. PHIVOLCS stated that the inflammation is evident in the structure of the volcano which may have been the cause of big chunk of rocks blocking its crater.
There’s also a possibility that the explosion will be catastrophic as the volcano continues to boil inside and gathering its strength.
