(TIME) — Philippines' Taal volcano eruption spews lava and coats Manila with ash ti.me/2QRQuAS.

Lava spilled out of the Taal volcano in the Philippines after a sudden eruption of ash and steam shut Manila’s international airport, offices and schools.

There were no immediate reports of casualties or major damage from Taal volcano’s eruption south of the capital that began Sunday. But clouds of ash blew more than 100 kilometers (62 miles) north, reaching the bustling capital, Manila, and forcing the shutdown of the country’s main airport with more than 240 international and domestic flights cancelled so far.
