Bulusan volcano showers 11 villages with ash

Breaking Volcanic Alert
Philippines

MANILA: The unstable Bulusan volcano in the eastern Philippines spewed a column of ash into the air on Saturday, showering 11 villages with ash, government scientists said.
Bulusan shot a four-kilometre plume of ash into the air, scattering particles for some six kilometres around the the 1,565-metre tall volcano, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said in a statement.
"Three days prior to the ash explosion, an increase in the daily number of volcanic earthquakes and moderate to voluminous smoke were noticed," Phivolcs said.
