Philippine volcano life-threatening despite `seeming lull'An erupting Philippine volcano remains life-threatening despite weaker emissions and fewer tremors, an official said Friday and advised thousands of displaced villagers not to return to the danger zone. The Taal volcano emitted weaker ash and steam explosions Thursday and Friday, the sixth day of its eruption. “When there is an explosion, that will be life-threatening, especially if people get very near, like on volcano island,” Renato Solidum, who heads the institute, told The Associated Press.
