Philippines raises alert level after volcano sends plume 1km skywards, evacuations strongly recommended — RT

Taal volcano

 The Philippines’ volcanology and seismology agency has raised its warning level for volcanic activity from level two to level three, after the Taal volcano spewed a plume a kilometer into the air.

In a statement shared on Facebook on Thursday, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said, “The Taal volcano main crater generated a short-lived dark phreatomagmatic plume one kilometer high with no accompanying volcanic earthquake,” at 3.16pm local time. A  phreatomagmatic eruption occurs when magma – that is, molten rock underground – meets water. Taal is located in a volcanic crater lake of the same name on the island of Luzon.

Small eruptions can be seen in photos and videos shared online....rt
