  • Thousands of residents in the Philippines have been ordered to evacuate their homes after a volcano began spewing ash into the sky. Seismologists say the Ta'al Volcano could errupt any day, following a series of earthquakes, rumblings and magma flows.
    The Ta'al Volcano lies just 65 kilometers south of the Philippine capital Manila, which has closed its airport due to huge plumes of ash belching from the volcano. The clouds have been generating volcanic lightning. Ashfall has made road travel dangerous in nearby towns. School classes have been cancelled, and residents have been advised to stay indoors and use masks.

    Don't judge the small volcano islands such as Mt. Taal. The smoke rising from the crater is great.

    I live in Muntinlupa City, southern portion of Metro Manila area. Even though the distance between the Muntinlupa City and the eruption site is 79 kms., or 1-hour drive away, the ash begins to fall in our city. It was evening of January 12, 2020 (Philippine Time or GMT+8). It looks like fine-grain powder scattered in the main road, but it appears brownish when you see the car's windshield.

    The smell is terrible. This sulfuric smell is like powder from the fireworks.

    Although it doesn't rain during the night, however, in the nearby cities of Batangas, including Tagaytay City (Cavite Province), a highland city overlooking Mt. Taal, suffers muddy roads because of rain.

    How can we expect after a hundred years when Taal became smaller when it erupts, the smallest volcano becomes active again?

    It's a picturesque yet one of the deadliest volcanoes. It only erupts once every several decades.
    I went home from work walking in the ashes. And the city where my office is located (BGC) was like a dead zone. It's crazy.
