Residents near Mayon evacuate

A soldier helps residents as they prepare to depart for an evacuation center after Mayon Volcano erupted in Guinobatan, Albay on Tuesday. Alert Level 4 was raised on Monday after the 2.46-kilometer high volcano spewed a large ash column. Volcanic ash shrouded nearby areas like Guinobatan where residents experienced early nightfall.
