Philippine volcano spews lava, ash for 3rd day, 30,000 flee

A volcano near the Philippine capital spewed lava, ash and steam and trembled constantly Tuesday on the third day of an eruption that could portend a much bigger and dangerous eruption, officials warned as tens of thousands of people fled ash-blanketed villages in the danger zone. The continuing restiveness of the Taal volcano after it rumbled to life Sunday indicates magma may still be rising to the crater, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said. More than 200 earthquakes have been detected in and around Taal, 81 of which were felt with varying intensities.
