Officials issue “volcanic tsunami” warning due to the recent eruptions from the Taal volcano increasing in disaster levels. The continuous activity raised the alarm level to 4 on a scale of 1-5.
The eruptive nature shown by the Taal volcano in Batangas province, 55 miles from Manila, led the officials to release the warning on social media outlets and local news agencies. The main crater was seen spewing ash and pebbles on Sunday.
The smoke from the volcano rose as high as 9 miles in the sky. Two volcanic earthquakes which were on the lower end of the richter scale were reported in Tagaytay City and Alitagtag.
