Rex Gatchalian was a curious cat on Twitter as he wondered aloud about volcano eruptions.

The Valenzuela mayor fired a question on social media as he wondered why all volcano eruptions, as seen in Taal, often come with lightning.

Two followers had the answer for the politiko.

“Research suggests the cause is the rubbing together of individual ash particles, which builds up enough static electricity to generate a lightning bolt. … Scientists think that as the plume of ash and water vapor rises from the volcano, ice begins to form in its highest layers,” user @glosenada said.

Now he knows!
