A second eruption went off on January 13 when molten rock entered the volcano.

More than 480,000 people in Batangas were affected by the eruptions and widespread evacuation orders forced people to flee for their safety.

The volcano sits in the middle of Taal lake – a volcanic caldera that has filled with water – and is surrounded by villages, town and cities.
