Mayon volcano had spewed ashes and rocks early today, Tuesday morning, May 7, 2013. Local residents and mountaineers are advised to take extra caution.
According to experts, the eruption reported earlier today is called, Phreatic explosion. The steam-driven eruption occurs when magma heats ground or surface water. The extreme temperature of the magma causes near-instantaneous evaporation to steam, resulting in an explosion of steam, water, ash, rock, and volcanic bombs.
While Mayon is on “Alert 0″, Salceda said they advise the residents to do the following:
1. Extra care and caution in conducting human activity in the 6-km PDZ – this includes ATV, trail runs, picnics etc.
2. We reiterate that Mayon Volcano mountaineering (or volcanoeering) is subject to prior notification to PTCAO/APSEMO/DOT
Update 1: GMA News quoted OCD Bicol as saying there are around 20 mountain climbers on Mt Mayon when phreatic explosion occured. Injuries reported.
Update 2: DZRH reports via reporter Jun Alegre that three individuals were killed while two others were injured as of this posting.
Update 3: News reports say four individuals were reported killed, three of them are foreigners while one is a tour guide.
From ‘Mickey D’s’ up in the United States, this US giant-fastfood chain, McDonalds is set once again to take a leap in their PR stunt by changing its famous golden arches signage to ‘Maccas’ in the Land Down Under.

McDonalds is rebadging certain stores in Australia and adapting its Aussie name, Maccas as part of the brand’s integrated Australia Day campaign and also used to launch the new Aussie Tastes menu this year.
“The restaurants will change their name for a month, replacing their signage with the customised ‘Maccas’ logo as a reflection of Australia’s embrace of the fast food brand over the four decades since its introduction to the country in 1971. Australia is the only nation in the world that routinely uses the abbreviated nickname of ‘Maccas’ when referring the McDonald’s restaurants.”
“Chief marketing officer for McDonald’s Australia Mark Lollback claims that changing the signage of several McDonald’s restaurants as a part of the organisation’s Australia Day celebrations is the best way to acknowledge the colloquial manner in which most Australians refer to the international fast food empire.”
Australian Times has the full story.
Happy Australia Day!
