Crater-pocked time bomb, Taal Volcano rises from Lake Taal, 40 miles south of Manila. Dor mant for half a century, the volcanic island sud denly erupted in September, 1965, blasting out the 306 inlet at upper right and spewing ash and pumice from the new crater in the inlet. Steam shot a thou sand feet aloft, spreading debris so thick that it buried scores of the cataclysm's 200 victims and their flourishing stands of coconut and banana. Two days later the volcano still belched (inset).
