A volcano in the Philippines has begun spewing lava, just as authorities warned of a possible hazardous eruption withinithin hours or days.
In the early hours of today weak lava began flowing out of Taal volcano- located some 70 kilometres south of the capital Manila.
It comes after it emitted a huge plume of ash triggering the mass evacuation of 8,000 people from the area.
Taal is the Philippines’ second most active volcano.
Situated on an island in the middle of a lake, it is one of the world’s smallest volcanoes and has recorded at least 34 eruptions in the past 450 years.
