Philippines Warns of Volcano Eruption

12 000 flee as Philippines warns of volcano eruption

The crater of a rumbling Philippine volcano was glowing bright red on Monday, with vulcanologists warning it could erupt within days, sending thousands fleeing from their homes.

Volcanic earthquakes and rockfalls have shaken the summit of Mayon over the last 24 hours, after a number of steam-driven eruptions, scientists said.

More than 12 000 people have been ordered to leave a seven-kilometre evacuation zone, and there are warnings of destructive mudflows and toxic clouds.
