Here’s how you can send donations for Taal Eruption evacuees

Filipinos, especially those in Southern Luzon, were disrupted on Sunday noon after one of the world’s smallest volcanoes, the Taal Volcano, suddenly erupted. According to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), Taal Volcano had a phreatic or steam-blast eruption that occurs when magma or hot rocks heat the surface water or groundwater. Around 2 in the afternoon, Taal Volcano began spewing volcanic ashes. A few hours later, the status of the Taal volcano was raised to Alert Level 4 which means that a hazardous explosive eruption may occur in the next hours or days. According to netizens, ashfall was also experienced in other parts of Cavite, as well as in Laguna, Antipolo, Metro Manila, and La Union.

Because of this unfortunate event, people living within the 14-km zone had to evacuate as soon as possible. There are currently more than 10,000 evacuees in 56 active evacuation centers. With that said, organizations are seeking help and donations to help those people affected by the Taal Volcano’s eruption.
