Philippines Mayon Volcano Eruption

One of the Ring of Fire volcanos, Mayon, has had its eruption alert level raised to a full-scale eruption “within days to weeks” by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology:

Philippine authorities have said a large-scale eruption of the 2,464-meter (8,077-foot) peak is imminent, and have begun trying to evacuate about 50,000 people living around the nation’s most active volcano. [link]

Mayon has erupted almost 50 times since the early 1600’s, the last being in 1993. The Ring of Fire is a highly active Pacific basin faultline much like the San Andreas fault.
