    Warnings of another volcanic eruption in the Philippines have forced thousands more people to abandon their homes. 

    Access to high-risk areas is limited near the Taal volcano in Batangas Province.  

    Drone video shows a town near the volcano being blanketed with falling ash.

    Buildings have collapsed and evacuation centres are almost full.

    Al Jazeera's Rob McBride joined scientists as they monitored the volcano - and sent us this report.
