Another volcano eruption in the Phillippines
"This is usually just ash, so the only hazard is from ash," such as respiratory ailments, del Mundo said.
The volcano erupted around 10:30 a.m. (0230 GMT) and winds first blew the ash plume toward the southwest and later shifted to the north, volcanologists said.
Bulusan, about 390 kilometers southeast of Manila, is one of the 22 active volcanos in the Philippines.
