Ashfalls vary widely in intensity, size of the ash particles, and the degree to which light from the sun is obscured or blocked completely. Because of the unexpected darkness during daylight hours, loud thunder and lightning, and the sometimes strong smell of sulfur during an ashfall, many people describe the experience as eerie and frightening, disorienting and confusing, or dreadful. In extreme ashfall, for example when ash thickness is more than 5-10 cm (2-4 in), people may feel stunned and fearful of the conditions, and may have difficulty breathing if a well-sealed shelter is not available. These thicknesses usually only occur within tens of kilometers of the vent. If caught outside during low visibility, people may become lost or extremely disoriented. If heavy ashfall continues for 12-60 hours or more (a very rare occurrence), roofs may collapse under the weight of the ash, resulting in more confusion, injuries, and even death.

Knowing what to expect during and after an ashfall can help people (1) reduce their anxiety and uncertainty when ash is falling to the ground; and (2) prepare their families and communities to deal with the ash effectively.

Ashfall is a tiny speckled black glitter topper inspired by the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson. In the first Mistborn trilogy, the climate on Scadrial is dominated by "ashmounts" - or, volcanoes that fill the air with large quantities of ash, which spreads over the land before coming down as "ashfalls." (Note that this is essentially fanart and in no way associated with Sanderson or his publishers.)

Lareau and his colleague Meghan Collins of DRI will identify common factors contributing to the fire-generated tornados using satellite and weather radar and combine it with crowd-sourced ashfall data, through the launch of a new citizen science project called Ashfall Citizen Science. These crowd-sourced data will help improve the understanding of wildfire plumes by better documenting the size and shape of fire ash lofted into the sky.

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) urged the evacuation of all people within a 14-kilometer radius of Taal because of continued risk of an explosive eruption, falling ash, and a potential volcanic tsunami. GMA News in the Philippines reported that more than 40,000 residents have evacuated because of the eruption and ashfall. An estimated 450,000 people live in the evacuation zone.

On 13 January PHIVOLCS reported that new lateral vents opened along the northern flank of the volcano with 500-meter-tall lava fountains and 2-kilometer-tall steam plumes. As of 1:00 p.m. local time on 14 January, lava eruptions continue along the flank, and heavy ashfall still falls on the surrounding towns. 59ce067264
