If you were planning to travel to the Philippines in the near future, then you may need to see if you can obtain a refund on your airplane ticket. Over the weekend, the Taal volcano erupted and began to spew smoke and ash into the air.
This volcano is located about 40 miles south of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. The eruption was so fierce that airport workers have been removing ash from the runway. Flights to and from Manila have been cancelled.
