Volcanic Eruption in Philippines

Reportedly not very far south of Manila. Manila Intl. Airport was briefly closed due to volcanic ash, but it's reopened. (I guess the wind shifted.) But some airlines have canceled flights.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology says:

"Alert level 4 still remains in effect over Taal Volcano. This means that hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days. DOST-PHIVOLCS strongly reiterates total evacuation of Taal Volcano Island and areas at high risk to pyroclastic density currents and volcanic tsunami within a 14-kilometer radius from Taal Main Crater. Areas in the general north of Taal Volcano are advised to guard against the effects of heavy and prolonged ashfall. Civil aviation authorities must advise aircraft to avoid the airspace around Taal Volcano as airborne ash and ballistic fragments from the eruption column pose hazards to aircraft."
