The Taal volcano eruption has turned parts of the Philippines gray with ash, as ensuing earthquakes continue and the threat of a bigger explosion remains.
What’s happening: The threat level of an imminent hazardous eruption remained at 4 out of 5 Thursday, per the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, which urged people to “guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall.” The volcano has been spewing lava and hot ash since it began erupting Sunday, causing over $11 million in damage to crops, Reuters reports.
