MANILA, PHILIPPINES – Officials in the Philippines are evacuating residents and watching for a tsunami after the Taal volcano has spewed a massive column of ash.

The Taal Volcano is located just 40 miles away from Manila, the capital of the Philippines and home to the nation’s main port.

Steam-driven eruptions point toward “a hazardous explosive eruption” of the Taal Volcano, located about 40 miles south of Manila, said the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology in an advisory Sunday, recommending a total evacuation.
