MBtv: Philippine town blanketed in ash after volcanic eruption

A volcano in the eastern Philippines has spewed a huge, dark cloud, prompting evacuations from ash-covered towns while authorities warned of possible further eruptions. The blast from Bulusan volcano in the rural Sorsogon province lasted about 17 minutes, sending a grey plume shooting up at least one kilometre (0.6 miles), according to the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.
