I'm a little surprised that no one on this group had any experiences during the MT. Pinatubo eruption. :89: 

I actually have AK.  I was stationed at Clark when the volcano started rumbling.  Came out one morning from the RAPCON and heard a blast off in the distance.  Looked towards Pinatubo and saw a huge plume.  Me and my family left Clark about a month before the fireworks really started.

I was also living in Tacoma WA when Mt. Saint Helen's blew up.

Hmm.  Seems like I have a thing with volcanoes.:shock_40_anim_gif:

It's looking pretty bad for the Taal area.  I've attached a photo taken from Puerto Galera a good 70km away. 

No the guy really was stupid enough to get married. 

Please let me now what place you will finally choose to live in, so that I can stay far away from you

I was living in Yakima at the time.  What a mess. :571c66d400c8c_1(103):  The ash was fairly coarse and gritty, the city hauled it away by the truckload for weeks.

My first trip to the Philippines was just after the Lahar incident, didn't that make a mess. The road out of San Fernando towards Olongapo was just a dike of compressed ash and the traffic was kicking up a tremendous cloud. The whole countryside looked like someone had just poured concrete over it with bits of roof poking out here and there.

I didn't realize that volcanic ash was heavy enough to cave in roofs. I always thought it was just a dust like material. I read about the lahar flows. Fortunate to not have experienced it.:mellow:

A ton of feathers can be as heavy as a ton of steel!  :smile:

My wife's making her way back to Mindanao via Dumaguete   today, ( sadly  after the funeral of her brother).

Is this something to be concerned about  having read further today?

I assume she will be going to Mindanao from Dumaguete by ferry so shouldn't be a problem.
