Taal erupts, spews ash,
Negros flights cancelled

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology warned last night of an imminent “ hazardous explosive eruption” at Taal Volcano hours after it sent a massive column of ash skyward that grounded flights and coated towns with fine dust.

A phreatic eruption triggered by hydro-thermal activities caused Taal to spew ash that as of last night had reached Manila, Phivolcs said.

Ten flights from Manila to Bacolod and Bacolod to Manila were cancelled last night with the suspension of all flights in and out of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA). moremoremore
