CBCP News said LASAC said the face masks are intended for residents in areas near the Taal Volcano.

Face mask donations may be brought to LASAC’s headquarters at the St. Francis de Sales Major Seminary compound in Lipa City.

Cash assistance, on the other hand, may be deposited in the following accounts: Union Bank, LASAC, 0026-6000-4062; or GCash, Jayson Siapco, 09665726244.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said a high volcanic sulfur dioxide emission reaching 13,572 tons was observed over the volcano on Thursday which caused “significant volcanic smog” or vog over the Taal Caldera.

Phivolcs has warned that exposure to vog may irritate eyes, throat, and respiratory tract.
