The Philippines is located in a region where coffee can abundantly grow. Also known as the “Bean Belt” countries in Southeast Asia, South Asia, Africa, and South America are where most coffee beans come from.
The Batangas provincial government assured residents whose livelihoods were affected by the Taal Volcano eruption of assistance in finding new sources of income.
Thousands of residents under orders to evacuate from a town near the Philippine volcano Taal were allowed to briefly visit homes on Friday to rescue their animals and recover some possessions, taking advantage of what appeared to be waning activity.
The warning of a further, potentially catastrophic eruption, also led authorities to urge the thriving tourism industry near the volcano — a popular attraction — to suspend activity as a precaution.
Farm damage from the eruption, including rice, corn, coffee, cacao and bananas, has reached 577.59 million pesos ($11.4 million), the Agriculture Department said. Mass fish deaths are expected in the lake surrounding the volcano because of toxic sulfur levels.
