Taal Volcano isn’t the only ash-spewing mound of dirt the Philippines has its eyes on right now.

In case you missed it, Mount Bulusan in Sorsogon erupted on the morning of Sunday, June 5, launching volcanic ash high up into the air and causing neighboring towns and villages to evacuate their residents.

As with all volcanic eruptions, what goes up must come down. In scenes somewhat reminiscent of Taal Volcano’s eruption two years ago, the incident covered nearby roads and thoroughfares with a moderate blanket of gray volcanic ash.
