MANILA, Philippines — Support and prayers continue to pour in for the Philippines following Taal Volcano’s phreatic eruption on Sunday.

Donovan Mitchell, the rising superstar from the Utah Jazz in the NBA, is among the many who expressed comfort and sent prayers to the tens of thousands affected by the hazardous ashfall from Taal Volcano.


“Damn this is wild! Praying for the Philippines and everyone affected,” Mitchell wrote on Twitter, retweeting a video of Taal Volcano’s eruption.
