Philippines' Taal volcano erupts, forcing thousands to flee
The sudden eruption of a Philippine volcano has forced tens of thousands from their homes and grounded 500 flights in the country's main airport. Red-hot lava gushed out of Taal volcano, and its ash blew 62 miles north to capital Manila, closing its airport. There have been no reports of casualties or major damage so far after the eruption, but thousands of people had to be moved to safety from the danger zone in volcano's vicinity. Experts warn the eruption could get worse.
