MANILA, Philippine – Residents in several areas, including Calabarzon and Metro Manila, woke up to a thick blanket of ash covering houses, trees, cars, and roads on Monday, January 13.
This came a day after Taal Volcano in Batangas spewed ash on Sunday afternoon, January 12, generating an ash column 10 to 15 kilometers high. As of Sunday evening, Alert Level 4 has been raised, meaning a “hazardous” eruption is possible “within hours to days.” (READ: What to do before, during, and after a volcano eruption)
