Mount Kanlaon Belches Massive Ash Column


The official aviation agency of #Philippines has advised passing aircraft to stay away from Mount Kanlaon, located on the central island of Negros after the volcano erupted, spewing a large amount of ash into the sky on Saturday .
The volcano shot whitish-grey ash about 1.5 kilometres into the air, but so far the authorities have not detected any lava rising inside the 2.47-kilometre high volcano.
The volcano, located about 510 kilometres south of Manila, has been more active than usual since November, prompting the government to ban hikers from its slopes.
