D.R. of Congo: volcanic eruption

Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, D.R. of Congo, Disaster

There is a volcanic eruption in Eastern DRC, [1] reports Congo Girl: “I went to the website hoping for a photo of the volcano, Mount Nyamulagira, but there was only a photo of lava covering Goma that came from Mount Nyiragongo in 2002. The expert cited in the IRIN report stated that Nyiragongo's lava formed a barrier that prevented the recent eruption farther north from reaching populated spots.”
