Mount Mayon Volcano Alert

In the Philippines is located one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature which is the Mount Mayon Volcano.  Known for its perfect cone shaped and the most active volcano in the Philippines, erupted for 49 times in the past 400 years.

Now, the alert has been announced by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Siesmology (Phivolcs) for Mayon Volcano due to the increasing lava flow of the volcano this December 2009.  The residents of the area are called to evacuate and people are not allowed to go near the volcano 6-7 Kilometers from the Mayon Volcano.

Mayon Volcano being always voted in one of the most beautiful natural wonders of the earth is popular to tourists, scientists, and geologists that are interested to witness how majestic the conical volcano is.  Locals are afraid that if the Mayon volcano erupts really hard, it will ruin its amazing shape and state as well as their living (as most are living off  the tourism).  Although, safety of the people will always be the main concern.
