MANILA – In an 8 am advisory on Thursday,  December 27, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said that Mayon Volcano emitted white steam-laden plumes that drifted southwest and west-southwest after.
It spewed ash as it remained on alert level 2 or a moderate level of unrest while a fair crater glow from the summit could be seen at night.
Phivolcs warned that sudden explosions, lava collapses, and pyroclastic density currents and ash fall may occur and threaten areas in the upper and middle slopes of the volcano.
People are not permitted to enter the 6-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone and the 7-kilometer radius Extended Danger Zone stretching from Anoling, Camalig to Sta. Misericordia, Sto. Domingo.

Civil aviation authorities were also warned against flying close to Mayon's summit
