In addition to the rescue teams, the police and soldiers also supported the evacuation efforts.
Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. stated that evacuations from the dangerous area continue and promised to provide assistance to those affected by the crisis.
There was no information on how many people were evacuated from the area.
Although the 6-kilometer-wide area surrounding Mayon, the country’s most active volcano, is a forbidden zone, Filipino villagers continue to reside and farm here.
The alarm level around the volcano was increased to 3 out of 5 in case of an eruption.
Mayon Volcano erupted in 2018, causing tens of thousands of people to flee their homes.
The Philippines is located on the fault line called the “Fire Belt” in the Pacific, where earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are intense.
