A week before the Taal Volcano erupted, Natalia Peña was close to the vicinity.
She was out with family and friends in Tali Beach in Nasugbu, Batangas. She shared a family photo on her Instagram account where she shared how grateful she is for her loved ones and how she wants to go back to Tali.
A week after, Taal Volcano surprised everybody when it started steaming and blowing smoke and fumes up the air.
As of writing, thousands of residents have evacuated, Batangas was declared in a state of calamity, and Alert Level 4 is still raised as Taal Volcano continues to show signs of possible explosive eruption within hours to days.
