The local disaster office said it had evacuated over 2,000 residents living
on the volcanic island, which lies inside a bigger lake formed by previous
volcanic activity. Mr Solidum said officials will also order the evacuation
of people living on another island nearby if the situation worsens.
The Philippine airport authority suspended flights
at Manila's international airport on Sunday.
"Flight operations at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport have been
temporarily suspended due to the volcanic ash from the eruption of
Taal Volcano," the Manila International Airport Authority tweeted.
