Nyiragongo Erupts


Yesterday, Nyiragongo erupted. It's about six miles from the northern border of Rwanda, in Goma, DRC. It is an utterly magnificent and amazing natural landmark, but it's also ferociously dangerous for the people living in its shadow. The above was my reaction to the news of the eruption, plus a little information about the volcano and the last time it erupted in 2002. We've been experiencing a few tremors down here in Kigali today.

Seismic activity in the past 24-hours.
