“We are all in terror”: Living in the shadow of the Mayon volcano

Mount Mayon, the Philippines’ most active volcano, has been intermittently erupting for over a week. Those eruptions have grown more frequent and violent over the last two days, and locals are bracing for a catastrophic event. The Philippine government estimates that nearly 60,000 residents have been evacuated so far and have warned residents to stay on high alert. Watch as Mary Vienmae Pasibe, an Albay resident living just 11 kilometers from the volcano, describes what it’s like to live in the shadow of Mount Mayon.
