Mayon volcano spews lava

Thousands of people evacuated from the base of Mayon volcano in the Philippines where scientists warn that the volcano is about to explode.

 

More than 9,000 families are being housed in evacuation camps after authorities raised the alert status of the country's most active volcano, Albay Province Gov. Joey Salceda tells CNN.

 

If you have photos or video of the Mayon volcano, please share them with CNN.

 

Please note: The government has established a "no man's land" rule in the designated danger zone, with military and police manning the nine checkpoints. Please do not expose yourself to a dangerous situation.
