    The historical urban park in Tagaytay, Cavite, which was a popular place among tourists who wish to have a look at the Taal Volcano looks desolated as it is covered in a thick layer of ash.

    The photos all look like old black-and-white pictures as ash particles fill every corner of the once happy place. Abuan described the place as "Lahat kulay abo."

    As of 9:00 p.m. January 13, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology continued to raise Alert Level 4 over Taal Volcano, which means a possible eruption may happen in few hours or days. The Batangas province has been placed under a state of calamity. Due to ashfall, the Ninoy Aquino International Airport is under "partial operations."
