It’s like our nature has been truly relentless in a fast few months. The Philippines have also been hit by a natural disaster recently. The Taal Volcano, located on the island of Luzon was erupted on the 12th of January launching a cloud of ash and steam miles into the air. Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) had to escalate the Alert Level from 2 to 4 due to this volcano.

The towns of Balete, San Nicolas and Talisay in Batangas, and also smaller towns on the shores of Taal Lake, were evacuated in fears of this eruption. It is estimated that around 459,300 people are within the 14 km danger zone according to the recently issued situation report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

There are no words to explain the difficulties that Filipinos are currently going through. People have captured some terrifying photos of the recently erupted Taal volcano. Here are the photos below.
