    Mayon Volcano spews ash killing five climbers in the Philippines

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Filipino student missinym took these images from the roof of her home in Daraga, Philippines near the Mayon Volcano, which sent a huge ash and rock cloud in to the air Tuesday morning. "My mom heard a noise like thunder, and it had been rumbling since [Monday] night," she said. "It's not something to be scared about, we've had worse so it's not that alarming. We're just praying for those injured and caught up in it." She said authorities had stopped all activity near the volcano, from tourist trips to farming, after the death of five climbers on the volcano.
