Reports from Reuters reveal that around 8,000 residents are being evacuated as of press time, with 6,000 residents confirmed safe and out of the danger zone.

Authorities have consolidated efforts to rescue and ensure the safety of civilians as they prepare ahead of the ‘imminent hazardous eruption’ of Taal Volcano.

Photos posted at the Facebook page of the PWS/PSU show residents from Talisay, Batangas rounded up by the authorities to lead them to evacuation centers.

Batangas has reportedly experienced over 30 successive earthquakes with a minimum of 3.0 magnitudes since the ash and smoke spewed out from Taal Volcano.

Both rescuers and residents brave through the ash fall that has struck nearby areas of Taal and Luzon since early afternoon.

Aside from forced evacuation currently ongoing for the residents within the 17 kilometer danger zone, residents are advised to take note of the disastrous effects that the eruption may produce.
