Bulusan Volcano (Philippines)

About 100 residents of a village near Bulusan volcano fled from a mudflow late yesterday. Ash and boulders were emitted from recent eruptions of the volcano and were washed down the mountain after heavy rains. Nearly 2,000 people have been evacuated to school buildings in Irosin and the nearby towns of Casiguran and Juban since Bulusan volcano began showing signs of activity in March this year.
