30,000 people flee as Taal volcano spews lava near Manila

Lava gushed out of a volcano near the Philippine capital on Monday, as tens of thousands of people fled the area through heavy ash and frightening tremors. Experts warned that the eruption could get worse and plans were being made to evacuate hundreds of thousands more. Clouds of ash blew more than 100 kilometers north of the volcano Sunday, reaching Manila and forcing the shutdown of the airport.
