What caused the Mayon volcano to erupt?
Mayon was formed in a subduction zone. Subduction is when two plates slide under each other to create new landform. This creates a volcano because lava came up from under the subduction zone and pressed up new land creating the volcano but the pressure from all the lava inside is what causes it to erupt.
