The Taal volcano erupts in Philippine capital, showering Manila with ash and lava

The Taal volcano in south Philippine capital Manila erupted on Sunday spewing ash and red hot lava, forcing 13,000 people to evacuate.

If you take a look at the photographs below, you can see the cloud of ash that blanketed towns near the volcano.

While no casualties nor major destruction have been reported, sources say that the Philippine capital is now at risk of a tsunami due to the volcano.

The last time the Taal Volcano erupted was in 1977.
