Photographs show broken hearts of dogs and horses rescued after the Taal volcanic eruption

-

The violent eruption of the Taal volcano in the Monday Philippines left images of a landscape that is full of destroyed houses, a thick layer of ash and animal carcasses.

The country's disaster response team said that at least 30,000 people fled their homes around the country's second most active Luan Volcano. However, some have chosen to return to their animals or rescue them.

In one photograph, a man wearing a dog mask carries to safety, affecting a baby walking along the ash-coated street. In other photographs, residents frighten livestock onto boats that swim on black waters.

A volunteer carries a dog animal rescue from abandoned houses near the Taal volcano as residents insisted on safer grounds leaving some of their pets behind Thaisay, province of Batangas, the southern Philippines on Wednesday Jan.15 , 2020.

While no fatalities were reported, crops and livestock were estimated at $ 10 million by constant pressure, according to the country's agriculture department.

The Volcanology Institute and Seismology of the Philippines raised the alert level for four out of five people, who warned that other hazardous eruption could occur at any time. But residents have warned the agency's warnings for years, infringing laws against establishing houses in permanent dangerous zones on the island.

This area has been advertised as government protection and subsequently a national park, which means that it should be outside the limits of permanent residents. However, this has never been implemented and the devastating explosions of the volcano in the past have caused the killing of more than 200 people in 1965.

The Philippine Defense Secretary, Delfin Lorenzana, warned that the “worst case” for Taal could be like the explosion of Mount Pinatubo, 90 miles north, which killed 800 people and made 200,000 homeless in 1991.

“We cannot ever predict the actions of this volcano,” he said.

Taal is among two inlets of active volcanoes in the Philippines. The country is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, a seismic-active region with volcanic creatures and eruptions.
