Taal volcano: Lava spews as 'hazardous eruption' feared - BBC News

  • Published: 13 January 2020
  • A volcano in the Philippines has begun spewing lava, as authorities warn that a "hazardous eruption" is possible "within hours or days".

    In the early hours of Monday, a weak flow of lava began seeping out of Taal volcano - located some 70km (45 miles) south of the capital Manila.

    It comes after it emitted a huge plume of ash, triggering the mass evacuation of 8,000 people from the area.

    Taal is the Philippines' second most active volcano.

          That looks like a lot of Co2. Are the people of the Philippines going to be paying a carbon tax for this?

                If a whole ice glacier melts into the sea that massive amount of water is going somewhere and it's going to affect all the volcanoes we are pretty safe here in America but and expect our rivers to be a little bit contaminated with the run on you can say goodbye to Miami and corpus Christi we didn't learn our lesson with the dust bowls and mother nature has to spank us again the worst we are the harder the spanking

                                              The cause of a volcanic tsunamic would be a huge part of the vulcanic crater or part of the volcano falling into the lake.

                                                    1:23 "pinapple groves" - looks like coconut trees to me. I always admire the acuracy of BBC news, so this minor slip-up caught my attention. :p This eruption reminds me a lot of the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption in my home state of Washinton, where I could see the ash plume from Seattle. Now I am living in Mindanao, far south of the Taal volcano... but can't help but admire the resiliance of the Philippine people during these natural disasters.

                                                      The groves are below the trees, and the pineapples are normally sold on those now-demolished market stands on the same clip. But harvest was not going to be until February so the stores were still empty.
