MANILA, Philippines — The unrest of Taal Volcano has forced several PBA teams to switch practice venues.

Blackwater, Magnolia and Phoenix had to move to different training facilities in Batangas due to health and safety concerns as alert Level 3 was raised over the volcano after it spewed a “dark phreatomagmatic plume” last Thursday.

According to the report, Magnolia and Phoenix faced the biggest threat while training at STI Lipa gym which is on the eighth floor.
