Fountains of lava, similar to fireworks, are thrown up to a height of 700 meters over Mayon, the most active volcano in the Philippines.
More than 40,000 people have already evacuated after the mountain began to shed ash and smoke, and scientists warned of the danger of a possible powerful eruption, which is why the authorities urged the population to evacuate.
