Taal volcano in the Philippines began to emerge on Sunday. Rumbling sounds and tremors were followed by a big plume of ash being launched into the sky.

Towns around Taal – which has to do with 70 km (45 miles) south of the capital Manila – were coated in thick ash and sludge, and in the early hours of Monday early morning the volcano began to spew lava.

Taal is the Philippines’ second most active volcano. It is likewise one of the world’s smallest volcanoes, and has recorded at least 34 eruptions in the past 450 years.

Lightning was seen striking around the volcano’s ash clouds as it erupted.
