Default volocano eruption

How has it been around the central Luzon region with the eruption of Taal volcano? I heard ash was dropping in Manila.

We were actually in Tagatay on Saturday at the Twin lakes restaurant ! Celebrating the Sisters birthday !
Nice and sunny day, no inclination that the Volcano was about to erupt !
Woke up Sunday morning everything covered in ash ! And we are 2 hours away !
Sister happy though she is a college teacher so no classes !

I heard ash was falling lightly in Manila. This is a small volcano but still dangerous one. I wonder about coming back to the Philippines. Luzon has volcanoes and typhoons. the central region around cebu has typhoons also. then Mindanao island has earthquakes.

I am wondering where it is safe there from volcanoes, earthquakes, floods and typhoons.

Perhaps you are safer in the USA where you only have earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes and tornados.

Anyone know how far the exclusion zone extends? I was thinking about going back to Manila but would be driving up through Puerto Galleria to Batangus then on the SLEX back to Manila.

Is this route still open? Safe to travel?

I heard 15-17 km from the Volcano so you should be okay.

hey Gary D, you know as well as I know the weather is worse in the Phillipines since it is a 'narrow island. Yeah we have hurricanes, tornadoes and etc here. I have lived here for 68 years and never been around a tornado.

You need to compare apples to apples. We have 3600 miles across our country to get away from bad weather. Is it 3600 miles across the island there??????

The point I was making is that they don't happen all over the Philippines all the time the same as in the USA. This has been my longest stay so far in the Philippines and I've not personally experienced any of them yet, although they have been happening in other areas.
