Taal volcano eases, but threat of catastrophic eruption remains high

In the Phillippines, the threat of a catastrophic eruption from the Taal volcano remains high, although the situation has eased. There is continued intense seismic activity, even though less ash and lava have been spewing from the mountain. Over 500 earthquakes have been recorded. Large fissures have opened up in the ground, and the volcano has emitted a larger amount of sulfur dioxide. Scientists said all these signs point to magma activity, which means a major event is brewing. They have warned that an eruption could set off a tsunami from the lake surrounding the volcano.
