One of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines rumbled to life yesterday, spewing rocks ‘as big as a living room’ according to one guide. 30 climbers were caught surprised. Five people (including three Germans and their guide) have been killed and many others injured. The injured are all foreigners.
The 2,460m mountain, about 340km south-east of Manila, has erupted about 40 times during the last 400 years.

So sweet of you to be thinking of them. I'm sure they are if they are in Manila city itself - away from where the volcano is.Delete
Philippines and Indonesia have plenty of natural disaster every year. That's why feng shui master always get it right, LOL...ReplyDelete
One feng shui report I read beginning of the year says there is likelihood of disease in 2013. Who would have guessed! We now have the H7N9 and the novel SARS-like coronavirus - lst case in France and 13 cases in Saudi Arabia.Delete
Which part of Philippines is this volcano? Wow! Rocks as big as a living room? Sounds scary!!ReplyDelete
The article says, this volcano is "about 340km south-east of Manila".Delete
I remember climbing the Taal Volcano near Manila last time and the following year it became active although no more news since then!ReplyDelete
That was pretty close. My close shave is with Mount Bromo. We were scheduled to go to Borobudur the same week as the eruption of the volcano but fortunately the trip didn't materialise.Delete
