(MANILA) — A stunning time-lapse video captured smoke spewing of the Mayon volcano in the Philippines this week.
“The lava fountains reached 500 meters to 700 meters [about 1,640 to 3,000 feet] high and generated ash plumes that reached 2.5 kilometers to 3 kilometers [1.5 to 1.9 miles] above the crater,” according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
Officials from PHIVOLCS raised the alert to four out of a possible five on Monday in response to the volcanic activity.
