Local authorities of the Philippines have reportedly issued an evacuation order as Taal Volcano gushed out red-hot lava on Monday, January 13, accompanied by a series of earthquakes. According to international media reports, thousands of people were being evacuated from south of the Philippine capital, Manila, and hundreds of flights have been further grounded amid an alert for a possible 'explosive eruption'.

The country's seismological authority further raised the alert to Level 4 out of a maximum 5 and reportedly suggested that a 'hazardous explosive eruption' is possible within hours of the day. Taal had been restive for months until it suddenly rumbled back to life Sunday, blasting steam, ash, and pebbles up to 10 to 15 kilometres (6 to 9 miles) into the sky, according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
