These are the latest eruptions from a volcano in the Philippines.

Mount Mayon spewed lava and ash high into the sky early on Wednesday (January 24), prompting more people to be evacuated.

Flows from the volcano have reached five kilometres, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

It’s prompted authorities to extend a no-go zone to eight kilometres from the crater and warn of more eruptions in the coming days.

At least 56,217 people were taking shelter in 46 evacuation camps Tuesday and army troops and police were helping others leave the danger zone.

Mayon's eruptions began on January 13 but their intensity has increased in recent days.
