    'Hazardous' Taal Volcano eruption possible 'within hours to days'

    (3rd UPDATE) Phivolcs raises Alert Level 4 for the Taal Volcano in Batangas on Sunday evening, January 12, warning that a 'hazardous' eruption is 'imminent'.

    State volcanologists raised Alert Level 4 for the Taal Volcano in Batangas on Sunday evening, January 12, warning that a "hazardous" eruption may occur "within hours to days."

    In a bulletin issued 7:30 pm on Sunday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Alert Level 4 means a "hazardous" eruption is "imminent."

    "As of 5:30 pm, eruptive activity at Taal Volcano main crater intensified as continuous eruption generated a tall 10-15 kilometer steam-laden tephra column with frequent volcanic lightning that rained wet ashfall on the general north as far as Quezon City," Phivolcs said.

    "Volcanic tremor [has been] recorded continuously since 11 am and two volcanic earthquakes of magnitudes 2.5 and 3.9 were felt at Intensity III in Tagaytay City and Alitagtag, Batangas...recorded at 6:15 and 6:22 pm, respectively," added the agency.

    Friction from the rising material in the ash column produces some wonderful effects.

    I love volcanoes but hope everyone stays safe.

    Must be really scary to live beside a Volcano and knowing it may erupt sometime soon or in the future. It's like living beside a nuclear bomb and just waiting for it to explode.

    I guess you don't care until it starts happening.

    The pictures are really nice. It's amazing how violent nature is. Ash here has started to fall like crazy and classes have been suspended.

    I was in Tagaytay 5 years ago. I visited a really pretty area. Ate at a restaurant with a view down on a huge mountain lake. Hope the quakes and ash don’t cause too much damage.
