Residents flee as Philippines volcano threatens to erupt
“Philippines authorities Tuesday started evacuating about 50,000 people living around the island nation’s most active volcano after it oozed fiery lava and belched clouds of ash.
A large-scale eruption was forecast as imminent.
The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology raised the alert level up a notch on Monday night to level 3. Scientist Alex Baloloy told the Philippine News Agency (PNA) that under level 3, ‘a full-blown eruption is expected to take place within weeks to days.'”
