And to those who keep going back: if it blows, say goodbye.
A rumbling volcano in the Philippines was on the verge of a major eruption today – but thousands of villagers living on its slopes are refusing to leave their homes.
Already, 40,000 people have fled the no-go zone around Mount Mayon, which oozed crimson lava during eerie scenes captured last night.
But around 3,000 residents, mostly farmers, remain – with some even returning after being evacuated up to three times by authorities.
And they need to do something! This snotty mountain is POLLUTING MOTHER GAIA!!
The emission of sulphur dioxide - an indication of magma rising inside the volcano - jumped to 6,000 tons per day from the normal 500, said the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
Whoooo, Algore must be really pissed!
