PHILIPPINES — ABS-CBN was able to get aerial footage of Taal’s volcano island — collapsed houses due to the weight of accumulated ash fall. Boats left behind by residents. Livestock left by their owners still alive.
Authorities conducted an aerial survey of the surrounding areas.
Taal may have calmed down for now, but the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) says eminent danger remains, as earthquakes continue to rock the area.
A potentially strong eruption can lead to a base surge, tsunami, and ballistic projectiles, or hot boulders, and from the volcano to the lake and its surrounding regions.
