Lahars from the 1984 eruption of Mayon volcano swept down the NW and SW flanks. This 24 September view shows lahar deposits burying the highway at the Santa Domingo junction on the lower E flank of Mayon, about 8 km from the summit. Mudflows from the 1984 eruption reached the Albay Gulf at several points near this location. Photo by Norm Banks, 1984 (U.S. Geological Survey).
