TAGAYTAY, Philippines (AP) — A volcano near the Philippine capital spewed lava, ash and steam and trembled constantly Tuesday on the third day of an eruption that could portend a much bigger and dangerous eruption, officials warned as tens of thousands of people fled ash-blanketed villages in the danger zone.

The continuing restiveness of the Taal volcano after it rumbled to life Sunday indicates magma may still be rising to the crater, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said. It raised the alert level to 4, indicating a hazardous eruption is possible in hours to days. Level 5, the highest, means such an eruption is underway.

Warnings of ‘Volcanic Tsunami’ After Eruption in Philippines

  Warnings of ‘Volcanic Tsunami’ After Eruption in Philippines MANILA — A dramatic explosion of the Philippines’ second-most-active volcano on Sunday prompted warnings of a possible “volcanic tsunami” as villagers were evacuated and nearby communities were advised to take precautions against any lake water surges. The explosion, which sent a plume of ash half a mile into the air, came months after the volcano — Taal, about 40 miles south of Manila — began exhibiting a state of unrest. Tremors were felt on the volcano’s island and in villages around the nearby town of Agoncillo in Batangas Province, and booming noises from the volcano raised fears among residents.

The Philippines ' Taal volcano has erupted, spewing a large column of ash which prompted raised alert levels and the evacuation of nearby communities. The eruption has prompted the evacuation of people living in the immediate vicinity of the volcano , with some 8, 000 locals affected.

Around 8, 000 residents were ordered to evacuate, with 6, 000 out of the danger zone on Sunday evening. Ash covered much of the surrounding area, and reportedly reached as far as the province of Cavite, directly south of Manila. Philippine volcano spews ash and prompts evacuations.

The volcano was spurting fountains of red-hot lava 500 meters (1,640 feet) into the sky with dark-gray plumes of ash-laden steam that reached 2 kilometers (more than 1 mile) high. The massive volcanic column at times flashed with streaks of lightning.

More than 200 earthquakes have been detected in and around Taal, 81 of which were felt with varying intensities. “Such intense seismic activity probably signifies continuous magmatic intrusion beneath the Taal edifice, which may lead to further eruptive activity,” the volcanology institute said.

The picturesque volcano in the middle of a lake in Batangas province south of Manila rumbled to life Sunday in a powerful explosion that blasted a 15-kilometer (9-mile) column of ash, steam and pebbles into the sky. Clouds of volcanic ash blowing over Manila, 65 kilometers (40 miles) to the north, closed the country's main airport Sunday and part of Monday until the ashfall eased.

Philippine volcano could erupt 'within hours or days' as 40,000 evacuate, schools shut down

  Philippine volcano could erupt 'within hours or days' as 40,000 evacuate, schools shut down As the Taal volcano gets closer to eruption, 40,000 people have evacuated. Meanwhile, schools and government offices closed in Tagaytay.The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology set the "alert level" at four, meaning a hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days. It advised residents across much of the country to guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall.

The Philippines ' most active volcano has started spewing fountains of red-hot lava and massive ash plumes as 56, 000 villagers flee to evacuation centres. Lava fountains gushed 700 metres (2,300ft) above Mount Mayon's crater and ash plumes rose up to 3km (1.9 miles), according to the Philippine

The government’s disaster-response agency counted more than 30,400 evacuees in Batangas and nearby Cavite provinces. Officials expected the number to swell.

Government work was suspended and schools closed in a wide swath of towns and cities, including Manila, because of the health risks from the ash. The eruption has not directly caused deaths or major damage. The death of a driver in a crash on an ash-covered road was linked to slippery conditions.

The Philippines ' most active volcano spewed fountains of red-hot lava and massive ash plumes anew Tuesday in a dazzling but increasingly dangerous eruption that has sent 56, 000 villagers fleeing to Mayon volcano erupts for the second straight day as lava cascades down its slopes Tuesday, Jan.

The small island where the 1,020-foot (311-meter) volcano lies has long been designated a “permanent danger zone,” though fishing villages have long existed there. Those villages were all evacuated, though volcanology officials have called for a total evacuation of endangered communities within a 14-kilometer (8.7-mile) radius of Taal.

Taal's last disastrous eruption, in 1965, killed hundreds of people. It is the second-most restive of about two dozen active volcanoes in the Philippines, which lies along the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” where most of the world's seismic activity occurs.

A long-dormant volcano, Mount Pinatubo, blew its top north of Manila in 1991 in one of the biggest volcanic eruptions of the 20th century, killing hundreds of people.
