Failon Ngayon tackles various issues that arise from the recent eruption of Taal Volcano. The program examines the effectiveness of the measures that the PHIVOLCS, NDRRMC, and local government units conducted following the Taal Volcano's phreatic eruption last January 12; and looks into the supposed lack of information dissemination about the erstwhile dormant volcano's hazards to nearby towns and cities. It delves into the seeming lack of communication among government agencies during calamities, which pushed the Senate to tackle a bill creating the Department of Disaster Resilience (DDR). The program also discusses the recent case of overpricing and hoarding of face masks amid a rain of airborne ash resulting from the eruption. Finally, it features the "bayanihan" spirit displayed by Filipinos in extending aid and assistance to people affected by the tragedy.
