In the Philippines, authorities are urging nearly half a million people near the capital Manila to evacuate their homes, after the Taal volcano spewed ash into the air Sunday. Authorities are now warning about a possible “explosive eruption” or volcanic tsunami. The Taal volcano is one of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes. Meanwhile, in Puerto Rico, a 5.9 magnitude earthquake rattled the island on Saturday. There have been powerful tremors almost daily after a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Puerto Rico last week, knocking out power. About 96% of electricity customers in Puerto Rico have had their electrical service restored by Sunday.
