The photos in this post show the extreme power of the Taal Volcano which erupted recently in the Philippines.

The world has seen a lot of disastrous events recently. While Australia is flaming between uncontrollable wildfires, the Philippines has been hit with a new disaster. A volcano called Taal which is located on the island of Luzon suddenly erupted on January 12th, 2020. Reports said that ash and steam could be seen even 6-9 miles into the sky. The Philippine’s Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) alert level quickly escalated from an Alert Level 2 to Alert Level 4. According to the Institute, “a hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days.”

An immediate evacuation was issued by The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology in the towns of Balete, San Nicolas and Talisay in Batangas and other towns closed to Taal Lake. While some people were watching filled with terror, some managed to take some photos of the erupting volcano. The powerful image showed smoke and ash rising from the Taal, reaching very high up in the sky. Because of this, the Manila International Airport Authority had to suspend all flights to and from all terminals of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.
