Philippine volcano spews fountains of lava, big ash plumes

(Worthy News) – The Philippines’ most active volcano has spewed fountains of lava and massive ash plumes overnight after authorities warned a violent eruption may be imminent.

The lava fountains reached up to 700 meters (2,300 feet) above Mount Mayon’s crater and ash plumes rose up to 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) from Monday night to before daybreak Tuesday.

An explosive eruption Monday was the most powerful since the volcano started acting up more than a week ago. [ Source: Fox News (Read More…) ]
