Glowing lava cascades down the slopes of the Mayo vocalno in Albay province, the Philippines, on Dec. 20, 2009. The possibility of hazardous volcanic eruption is high, the government warned as it called for the evacuation of residents living near the foot of the restive Mayon Volcano. Relief officials said more than 40,000 people have already moved to 25 evacuation centers in eight municipalities around Mayon. (Xinhua/Jon Fabrigar)
