Philippines volcano eruption forces thousands to flee

  • Published on Jan 13, 2020
  • A volcanic eruption in the Philippines is forcing tens of thousands of people to flee their homes.
    Taal volcano in Tagaytay, about 70 kilometres south of the capital Manila, started spewing ash and lava on Sunday.
    About 8,000 people have already been evacuated from the island on which the volcano sits with thousands more leaving neighbouring coastal towns.

    Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan reports from Batangas Province.

      Nothing to be proud of being from Philippines or any coountries ... countries were created by british ,france and usa to devide the people and exploite resources and meddle with policies after ww2...

      Learn basic geography first.... Philippines is in the east, not in west.
      Also, your pedophile prophet's god made middle east a barren land. Even one grass can't grow there. If other countries can't export enough food, you guys are dead duck in a week. By the way, that's what alla, the brothel runner of 72 virgins, wanted you guys to suffer without food
