30 Photos Showing How Terrifying The Recent Volcanic Eruption In The Philippines Looks

Published 10 months ago

Looks like Mother Nature has been truly relentless in recent months. As if the Australian bushfires weren’t enough, the Philippines have also been hit by a natural disaster. On the 12th of January, the Taal Volcano, located on the island of Luzon, erupted, launching a cloud of ash and steam miles into the air. This prompted the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) to escalate the Alert Level from 2 to 4.

The towns of Balete, San Nicolas and Talisay in Batangas, as well as smaller towns on the shores of Taal Lake, were evacuated in fears of an explosive eruption that might occur within days. A recently issued situation report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimates that around 459,300 people are within the 14 km danger zone.

Words can hardly describe what Filipinos are currently going through, however, people managed to capture some terrifying photos of the recently erupted Taal volcano – check them out below.

Aušrys Uptas

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
