As the Philippines-based volcano Mount Mayon continues to show signs of erupting residents who are refusing evacuation are being asked to sign waivers by rescue services. “Radio dzBB’s Alan Gatus on Tuesday reported that troops from the Philippine Army went back to some Albay villages that are within the zone to get the names of several male residents who were still staying in the area. The soldiers also asked the men if they were with other people or family members who had refused to be evacuated from the site.The Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council may have to ask the residents to sign a waiver because they don’t want to move out of the zone despite the warning that Mayon could soon erupt and cause health hazards, according to Gatus who is now in Albay. About 45,000 people or 95 percent of the residents within the zone have been moved out of the area and are now staying in the province’s 25 evacuation centers, Gatus said quoting reports from the council.”
