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

Congo Rangers blog has a story [1] about Mount Nyamulagira volcanic eruption in the Democratic Republic of Congo, “Nyamulagira erupted on Monday 27th at approximately 1930. Ever since, lava from the 1km long fissure has been moving down the western side of the volcano towards Sake, a small town 25km west of Goma on the edge of the Virunga National Park and the scene of recent clashes between the dissident Gerneal Laurant Nkunda and the UN Peacekeeping Forces.”
