This is to notify the public that PHIVOLCS-DOST is now raising the alert status of Mayon Volcano (13.2576 N, 123.6856 E) from ALERT LEVEL 3 to ALERT LEVEL 4.  This means that a hazardous explosive eruption is possible within days, thus, areas expected to be affected by such eruption will be accordingly extended.

To ensure the safety of the public, PHIVOLCS-DOST is recommending an extended danger zone from the summit of 8 km at the southern sector and 7 km at northern sector.

Areas just outside of this Extended Danger Zone (EDZ) should prepare for evacuation in the event   explosive eruptions intensify.
