UK to nationals in the Philippines: Stay outside Mayon’s danger zones

Jan 16, 2018 @ 9:58

The United Kingdom has advised its nationals in the Philippines to stay away from the danger zones around restive Mayon Volcano, which erupted over the weekend.

In an update to its travel advice on the Philippines, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office said British nationals should also heed advice from local authorities.

“Mayon volcano in Albay Province (Bicol region) is showing signs of imminent eruption. British nationals in the region are advised to monitor and respond to advice from the local authorities and to stay outside of the designated danger zones,” it said (https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/philippines).

Last Saturday, Mayon erupted and prompted the evacuation of several barangays near the volcano.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology raised the alert level at Mayon to “3.”

Also, the UK FCO advised its nationals to check for updates from the Phivolcs website at phivolcs.dost.gov.ph.

It also advised its nationals of possible flight disruptions in Bicol.

“British nationals in the region are advised to monitor and respond to advice from the local authorities and to stay outside of the designated danger zones. An eruption may cause disruption to flights; you should check with your airline before travelling,” it said.
