UAE embassy urges Emiratis in Philippines to exercise caution amid Taal volcano activity

Dubai: The UAE Embassy in Manila has issued an advisory to UAE citizens currently present in the Philippines, urging them to exercise caution in the face of volcanic activity at the Taal Volcano, located south of the capital.

In response to the volcanic fog generated by Taal, Emiratis are advised to closely follow the safety instructions provided by the Philippine authorities. Additionally, in emergency situations, UAE citizens are advised to contact the following numbers for assistance: 0097180024 or 0097180044444.

For further assistance and to facilitate timely support, UAE citizens are also urged to register for the Twajudi service.

State volcanologists said Thursday that Taal Volcano has begun emitting volcanic smog (fog), which could adversely affect health and damage crops and infrastructure.

“Since 12:30 pm today, the Taal volcano network has observed smog or volcanic fog over Taal Lake and it has persisted in the region until the present,” the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said in its latest warning.
