Thousands of residents in Batangas have been evacuated due to the continuous threat of Taal Volcano’s major eruption. Last January 12, 2020, the volcano’s main crater spewed small rocks and thick ash that blanketed nearby towns.
As of writing, 11 Batangas towns are under complete lockdown, leaving affected residents no choice but to stay in evacuation areas away from the 14 km-radius danger zone identified by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS). Alert Level 4 is raised in Taal Volcano, which means hazardous eruption is possible within days.
Based on the latest records of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (PDRRMC), 37,355 families or 162,728 individuals are in various evacuation centers.
