Taal’s latest emission didn’t affect Metro Manila–Pagasa
MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) clarified that Metro Manila was not affected by Taal Volcano’s emission on Friday morning.
Pagasa said that the ash column released by Taal—with winds coming from east to southeast—would go to the west southwest direction of the volcano which are the areas in Batangas and Cavite.
“Dito sa Metro Manila, linawin po natin, hindi po tayo naapektuhan ng pag-erupt o pagbuga ng usok ng Taal Volcano kaninang umaga,” weather specialist Ana Clauren said.

But if a major eruption occurs and the ash column exceeds 7 kilometers, ash plumes may also be drifted over the western parts of Laguna and Quezon, Pagasa said.
Meanwhile, Pagasa said no low pressure area (LPA) or storms are expected to affect the country in the next three to five days.
The state weather bureau said a large part of Luzon will be affected by the northeast monsoon while easterlies will affect Southern Luzon as well as parts of Visayas and Mindanao.
