Mayon volcano alert

MANILA (AP) — Mayon appeared ready to blow its top Monday as six explosions sent ash columns up to 800 meters (a half-mile) high and led officials to evacuate 50,000 people from an extended danger zone. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology raised the alert to level 4, saying an explosive eruption appeared imminent. Level 5 represents an ongoing eruption. – ctv
