Phivolcs likewise said that Mayon spewed a 400-meter lava at 2:02 a.m. also on Thursday.

Phivolcs was not able to measure the height of lava fountaining due to thick clouds, but said that the episode lasted for 58 minutes.

On Wednesday, Phivolcs recorded a total of six events of lava fountaining at Mayon.  /kga
