Reunion: Volcano Eruption

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Reunion, Breaking News, Environment

From Reunion, Jean-Paul at Dijoux.re writes (Fr):”It is the first eruption of the yea [1]r. Of the two lava flows registered at the beginning of the eruption, one stopped and the other has diminished. The awful weather (i.e. the cold, the rain and the fog) is not making for a scenic eruption. A path was cleared but it takes a 4-5 hour hike to get close to the lava. But our volcano is capricious and its summit is often deceptive. Tonight (Friday) it rains in the North and East of the island with a temperature of 20 degrees C on the coast.”
