"Mayon emitted what looks like a mushroom cloud. I immediately called Rene Solidum but he has yet to verify with Ed Laguerta since there were no prior major movements in key indicators (EQs, etc). The mushroom can still be seen."

- Albay Governor Joey Sarte Salceda (His first Facebook post regarding the incident at exactly 8:12am)
Without any prior warning, Mt. Mayon, an active volcano located in the Albay province in the Philippines, violently spewed out ash and steam which resulted to the death and injury of tourists and tour guides who were trekking the said volcano and were caught off guard when the incident happened.
