Pormahan ng mga Evacuees
Cavite residents who were affected by the Taal Volcano eruption have shown their gratitude and even shared some positive vibes with what they called “Pormahan ng mga Evacuees” on social media.
Some people wore both formal and informal clothes donated by some Good Samaritans. The clothes included bathing robes, dresses, security guard polo suits, Girl Scout uniforms, and teacher’s uniforms.
As if on Project Runway, the Cavite residents posted their photos on their Facebook group Cavite Connect, which has received a feel-good feedback from the netizens.
Such a collective gathering of interesting photos has shown the Filipino’s ever optimistic and resilient outlook in life, despite the difficulties in life that they face.
Taal Volcano Eruption

It has been six days since the first eruption of Taal Volcano in January 12. It has caused severe damages in properties and forced thousands families to evacuate their homes.
Phivolcs initially raised the warning to alert level 2 when the volcano started spewing ashes. It was immediately raised to Alert 4 when ash plumes and rock fragments started to reach the volcano’s column.
Ash fall started to reach Metro Manila and CALABARZON.
As of January 16, the volcano activity has become weak in emission but strong tremors still persisted. However, Philvocs maintained the status of the volcano to alert level 4 to keep families safe especially from the danger zone area.
