Glowing red lava rolls down the slopes of Mount Mayon as authorities maintained a warning of a possible hazardous eruption Tuesday morning near Legazpi, the Philippines. Nearly 15,000 people have fled the danger zone. After steam explosions Saturday and lava rising in the crater Sunday, authorities believe a hazardous eruption is possible within weeks. Mayon lies in coconut-growing Albay province. With its near-perfect cone, it is popular with climbers and tourists but has erupted about 50 times in the past 500 years, sometimes violently — in 2013, an ash eruption killed five climbers who had ventured near the summit despite warnings. The most destructive eruption happened in 1814, killing 1,200 people and burying a town in volcanic mud. The Philippines lies in the Pacific’s “Ring of Fire.”
