The Philippines has to deal with natural calamities and today was considerably record-breaking.

Then there were the four active volcanoes, which the Philippines Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) recorded and tagged as Alert Level 1.
The four volcanoes were Taal in Batangas, Mayon in Albay, Kanlaon in Negros Occidental, and Bulusan in Sorsogon.
For Taal, five volcanic earthquakes were recorded. For Kanlaon, there were four volcanic earthquakes. For Mayon, there was a rockfall even with white steam-laden plumes. For Bulusan, there were white steam-laden plumes.
Here are some of the photos and or videos of the volcanic activities.
Catastrophes have been happening not just in the country but in other countries as well. One of the most shocking was the Beirut blast. The blast in Beirut somehow shocked the world. OFWs in Beirut were affected. In other countries, they are also confronted with uncertainties daily, including those concerning their safety.
Aside from Filipinos working in a domestic capacity, there are other OFWs in foreign countries working as frontliners.
An explosion always poses a danger to the community. With the recent incident in Lebanon, it may give other countries a chance to look into the regulation of storing chemicals in warehouses.
