  • Campuses and universities near Taal Volcano and around Metro Manila have announced class suspensions on January 13 due to the eruption of Taal Volcano's main crater on Sunday afternoon, January 12.
  • DOST-PHIVOLCS has raised the alert status of Taal from Alert Level 3 to Alert Level 4. "This means that hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days," according to the DOST-PHIVOLCS website.

Following the eruption of Taal Volcano, Malacañang has announced the suspension of classes in all levels and government work in Calabarzon, Metro Manila, and Central Luzon, and has encouraged private sectors to follow suit.

Following the news, most universities have already announced their respective class and office cancellations, alongside calls for vigilance and safety amid the continuing ashfall.

DLSU has also issued separate announcements on the suspension of classes for their BGC, Makati, and Manila campuses.

Meanwhile, citizens are urged to remain safely indoors, due to the harmful effects of volcanic ash to our health. If outside, the use of N95 grade masks, or a wet cloth or towel to cover the mouth and nose is advised.
