Nearly 40,000 peo­ple have fled from their homes

ahead of a fierce erup­tion from Mount Mayon, 500km south­east of the Philip­pine cap­i­tal of Manila. The vol­cano has erupted at least 50 times in the past 500 years, killing about 1,200 peo­ple in 1841 when an

en­tire vil­lage was con­sumed by molten rock.
