Mayon, Philippines - Top 9 Most Dangerous Volcanoes

Mayon is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and perfect volcanic edifices. Unfortunately, there are several risk factors involved with such a huge edifice. The greatest and most immediate one of these being a flank collapse initiated by either a large tectonic earthquake or a volcanic eruption. Recent research has shown that the volcanic edifice is built on or near two major faults and there are incipient cracks on several of its flanks. The main problem with Mayon is that while it is relatively well-monitored it is far from adequately studied. Source
