Kanlaon Volcano spewed ash and incandescent fiery rocks accompanied by a booming sound at 6:20 p.m. yesterday.
The fiery rocks could be seen on the upper flanks of the volcano before they died out, Supt. Frankie Lugo, chief of Canlaon police in Negros Oriental, said.
There was no flowing lava, it was a one-time eruption, Lugo said.
Re-electionist Vicente “Tito”” Sotto lll, senior member of the Nationalist People's Coalition, officially endorsed the complete slate of the Grupo Progreso-NPC during its opening salvo yesterday at the Bacolod Public Plaza that was attended by thousands of their supporters who came in red shirts.
The group led by Bacolod Rep and mayoralty candidate Evelio Leonardia proceeded with their political rally despite the fact that the electricity at the Bacolod Plaza was turned off so they had to use a generator. The lights were switched on at the plaza only when their rally was over. .

Sulu VG against
‘breaking' of Mindanao
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
Sulu Vice Governor Abdusakur Tan said he is against moves to break Mindanao.
He said there should be unity because “we are all Filipinos,” adding he doesn't like the idea that certain groups and communities in Mindanao will be placed on one side and the others on another side.
Tan, who visited Dumaguete City and Negros Oriental yesterday, said he would have wished that the image of Mindanao be like that of Dumaguete, Cebu and the rest of the Visayan region where peace and tranquility dominate. .
