The Taal Volcano, the second most active volcano in the Philippines, began erupting on January 12 and lasted for a few long days. Seismic activity was observed by scientists up until January 26! It’s been 44 years since the last eruption of mighty Taal, but no one expected it to lie dormant for much longer. As the first explosions started happening, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) ordered to evacuate the towns closest to the shores of the Taal Lake. Airports were all shut down, with flights suspended indefinitely.
Overall, the eruption of the Taal Volcano created a 10-15 km column of smoke that rose high beyond the skies.

It’s not every day you get to play at the beach with an erupting volcano as your backdrop. This photo is both light-hearted and incredibly unnerving.
