The Light Rail Transit Authority (LRT-2) said it temporarily shut off the train’s air-conditioning system on Monday to prevent damage due to the volcanic ash from Taal Volcano.

“To ensure the safety of the LRT 2 system and the passengers, LRT 2 will be implementing the following today: The train’s air-conditioning system will be shut off to prevent damage to the trains,” the management said in an advisory on Monday.

Windows will also be closed to prevent passengers from exposure to ash and sulfur, it added.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) upgraded Sunday evening the volcano’s alert status to level 4 as Taal Volcano’s continuous eruption generated a 10-kilometer to 15-kilometer steam-laden “tephra column” composed of rock fragments and particles.
