Good day! May I request for data on the by the 2020 Taal eruption as of present? I would also like to request to details on the activities of the volcano that led to the eruption and how it affected various sectors (e.g. agriculture, infrastructure, business, etc.)

I would also like to ask if there is an action plan for the recovery after the eruption and what is to be expected from the volcano in the the next months and in the next years

If there is already official data available online, i would like to request for a link. Let me know if you need more details. Thank you!
