The latest lava fountain shot out of Mayon Volcano at 9:30 PM on Monday lighting up the night sky, after which fiery debris could be seen cascading down the volcano’s slopes.

The alert level on Mayon is now at Alert Level 4, which means an explosive eruption may occur within hours or days. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) raised the alert level on Monday after a huge plume of ash shot up around midday.
