The activity at the volcano remains intense. The February 2016 side vent on the eastern lower terrace, which stopped in May and restarted in mid August, continues to be active, too. [lire toutes]

The volcano's activity has increased again and the February 2016 side vent is now very active again, again producing lava cascades into the central lake. [lire toutes]

One of the local mountain guides reported that as of 30 May, no more lava flows from the side vent were active and cascading into the main lava lake, although lava bubbling could still be seen at the side vent.

The secondary vent remains active, a recent visit (on 8 April) at the volcano showed. Lava continues to be erupted from the side vent on the eastern crater floor and occasionally still cascades into the main pit with the active lava lake:

A recent visit to the volcano showed no more (or at least no more significant) activity from the side vent on the lower terrace. The recent lava flows that had surrounded the lips of the inner crater and partially spilled into the central lava lake were seen cooling.

The mainly effusive activity from the new secondary vent inside the volcano's caldera continues with little changes. By now, new lava flows have surrounded the central pit (containing the main lava lake), covered most of the lower platform and cascade into the central vent at multiple locations.

Aerial image with location of reflectors and fix points for distance measurements on Nyiragongo. 17mm of extension occurred during February between T1 (south) and P2 (west)
Goma Volcano Observatory published the results of recent field work on the crater of Nyiragongo during 10-11 March in a new report: in summary, it seems that the current intense activity from the two vents inside the inner crater is confined to this area, and no magma has migrated laterally.

The new vent inside the crater of Nyiragongo remains very active, producing pulsating lava fountains of approx. 30 m height at intervals of 30 seconds, according to the observatory. Well-alimented lava flows leave from the vent.

A cook who spent the night of 10 March on the rim of the crater reported that the volcano was unusually "noisy".
mar., 8 mars 2016, 18:06
A new intra-crater flank vent opened at the northeastern margin of the summit caldera's floor. This highly interesting event could be a precursor of a new flank eruption.

Some very unusual and alarming events have been taking place at the volcano recently: A new eruptive vent opened at the northeastern end of the lowest crater terrace, outside the active lava lake (which had been in place since 2002) and just beneath the near vertical crater walls.. [lire toutes]
