According to experts, it’s best to sweep ash off a roof, because “the addition of water will turn the ash into mud which can set like concrete.

But it's a different case in Biñan City where they turn the ash into brick.

“Kaya kailangan nating isako ang mga ito at hindi makabara sa ating mga canal,” Biñan City Mayor Arman Dimaguila said.
Biñan is just one of the cities in Laguna hit by the ash fall caused by Taal Volcanic eruption since Sunday, January 12, 2020.
