Mayon, a volcano in the Philippines, is on watch for an eruption after experiencing small explosions. Philvolcs, (short for the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology), reports a small ash emission - ~200 feet - but they feel that there isn't an imminent threat of an eruption. Mayon is an relatively active volcano in the Philippines, last erupting in 2006 and is well known for its prototypical conical volcano shape (see above).
