Philippines’ Taal Volcano: Thousands Evacuated Following Massive Eruption

  • Published on Jan 13, 2020
  • Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated in the Philippines after Taal Volcano erupted with a massive plume of ash and steam.
    The eruption of the country’s second most active volcano caused travel disruption and forced airports to shut down, after covering vehicles and roads in a thick layer of ash.
    The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) has raised the alert level from 2 to 4, as authorities also warned of a possible “volcanic tsunami”.

    I wonder if greta realizes that there's more ash in that eruption than mankind has produced in over 200 years? Now, greta, you can leave Australia, fly immediately to the Phillipines & start protesting @ the base of the crater.

      There's only one volcano. What you saw is the vent. There are more than 30 vents of the Taal volcano. The surrounding lake of the volcano is actually a caldera.

      Donald Trump tamboura has a much larger affect, as it was a much larger eruption, comparing the two is silly

      Donald Trump yes, because it only lasted few years and literally had no affect outside of the Philippines

      Donald Trump even then pinatubo had little global effects other than slight cooling

      s o l d Overreacting. Although a massive eruption is possible, it’ll probably be measured as VEI 3. These happen ALL the time. Pinatubo was measured VEI 6! It’s like we are treating this as Pinatubo.

      philonetic I hate to tell you, and am not insinuating anything...but you are going to the wrong sources. It's complicated.

      @hello hun I'm reading *possible* correlation studies from NASA and Harvard but nothing definitive.
      Still, very interesting.

      philonetic check out the topic....cosmic rays effect on magma. They have everything to do with quakes and volcanic activity. With the grand solar minimum well under way and our fast moving poles and magnetic protection slipping, we are presently undergoing More cosmic ray bombardment than ever recorded.
