    when you follow the history,, the whole lake is actually the whole crater of the volcano before,,

    • that’s why it’s called a ‘crater lake’.

    • Stop saying that the lake is the crater. The lake was the crater a long, looong, looooong, loooooooong time ago. It’s not the crater anymore. The current crater is on that small island in the middle of the lake. This is the reason why it’s considered one of the smallest active volcanoes in the world.

      The main caldera is actually 30 km across – much larger then the 17 km exclusion zone and much larger then Taal lake. That was 5500 BC and earlier – the action these days takes place in the caldera within Volcano Island in the middle of Taal lake.

      Duane McDade; Yes, this volcano, according to an entry on Google Earth I read just a moment ago, does in fact have the potential to produce what would qualify as a ”super eruption, ” that could have significant and possibly catastrophic effects upon the earth’s climate for an extended period of time. You are correct, and that is very unfortunate for us earthlings ! We can only hope that the current ongoing eruption does not expand to full potential and lead to that entire lake bed which is over 7 miles wide and almost 10 miles in length, being blasted up into the earth’s upper atmosphere. I can not say even roughly how bad that would be, but I do know, we do not want to find out !
      Some 2 million people live on the flanks of this volcano. The reports being given to the public seem to be down playing the number of people in the immediate vicinity of this monster who are in danger. Furthermore, I have yet to hear or see a report in which this volcano’s potential to cause what would be similar to a global nuclear winter, is even mentioned. I suspect that the people in the know so to speak, along with the involved governments, are fearful of a global panic. As for me, I believe people have a Right to know, that there is at least the possibility that their lives could very soon, be altered, altered significantly at that, and not in a good way either !

      Yes you are right. Taal Lake itself is a caldera. Taal Volcano is the second most active volcano in the Philippines… it’s a mini super volcano 🙏🏼

  9. Define “imminent”

    • Gilbert Plays ☆ #1 Gaming Channel | January 14, 2020 at 8:45 AM | Reply

      Imminent is mostly from hours to days.
      A bigger explosion. Hope it doesn’t happen because I already wasted 2 days cleaning my house.

      Imminent doesn’t have to be directly. It can take days to months, etc. They said the Magma is still quite deep, but if it is definitely pressurized, it will harshly and create a hard explosive eruption.

    • Was poking fun at the Democrats for their outrage over killing that terrorist who was going to attack US forces.

  10. My prayers to you all.🙏

    2:00 and yet he smiles. I find it so amazing that he can smile in a situation of such. Knowing me, I would be in a panic. I have a lot to learn and hope to one day have that kind of peace. First world problems can spoil you! Prayers to all my brothers and sisters in the PI.

    • They are witnessing the wonders of GOD that’s why he us smiling with fear

      Joel 2:30 King James Version (KJV)

      30 And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke

    • Yeah, we Filipinos always smiles in times of these because we can survive even the toughest catastrophe we faced😊We faced typhoons, earthquakes, no volcanic eruption can stop us for being sad and terrified and we are brave enough to face those calamities😊 Like we said, “Bulkan lang yan(translation: It’s just a volcano)” 😊
