MANILA, Philippines – The province of Albay was placed under a state of calamity on Tuesday, January 16, amid the threat of a "hazardous eruption" from the Mayon Volcano.
What are the hazards and risks that Mayon, one of the 6 most active volcanoes in the Philippines, pose? What should the affected communities do to prevent casualties?
