Mt Cameroon volcano news & activity updates

Mt Cameroon volcano - possible new eruption reported

Tuesday Feb 07, 2012 00:01 AM | BY: T

Mt Cameroon volcano in Cameroon seems to have started a new eruption. According to local news, mild tremors and explosions were noted at the volcano during the past week, intensifying last Friday. A group of tourists is reported to have fled the volcano after they heard loud explosions, followed by earthquakes.
"We heard a heavy explosion followed by some earth vibrations. It lasted about 7 seconds. There were flames and sulphuric acid coming out of a spot where we found ash and we decided to go back down," Peter Linonge Buma, a guide accompanying the tourists is quoted in a news article.
The explosions seem to be strong enough to rattle doors and windows in nearby villages where most residents are preparing to evacuate.
The last eruptions of Mt Cameroon volcano were in March 1999 and May 2000.
