Evacuation in the Philippines, there is a danger of a volcanic eruption

The awakening of Taalu in 1911 took the lives of more than 1,300 people.

Philippine authorities began evacuating thousands of people today after an alarm was raised over the eruption of an active volcano that ejected a column of gas and steam at a height of one kilometer, Reuters reported.

The alarm over the Taal volcano, about 70km south of the capital Manila, has been raised from third to second degree on a five-point scale, which according to the Seismology and Volcanology Service means that “magma injection” into the main crater “may lead to successive eruptions “.

Taal is one of the smallest active volcanoes in the world. Although it rises to 311 km above sea level, it can be deadly, and its eruption in 1911 took the lives of more than 1,300 people.
