A volcano southwest of Guatemala's capital has erupted for the second time this year on Sunday, spewing ash nearly six kilometers (four miles) into the sky.
Red-hot lava has started gushing from a volcano near the Philippine capital of Manila. Authorities have made plans to evacuate hundreds of thousands, warning of a potential "hazardous explosive eruption" still to come.
The Taal volcano in the Philippines has spewed lava and ash for three straight days. Thousands of residents have been evacuated and authorities warn that it could erupt at any moment.
Local authorities have issued an evacuation order as Taal Volcano shows signs of an impending eruption. Taal has not erupted in decades, but one catastrophic event in 1911 killed over 1,000 people.
A Philippine city blanketed in ash has turned adversity into an opportunity. In a time of disaster, residents have got creative by mixing volcano ash and trash to help reconstruct communities ravaged by Taal.
