Lengai volcano as seen from the north-east on 27 Oct 07: thick plumes of ash rise from the active crater and recent ash and lava deposits can be seen on the flank.

As more evidence about the large eruption at Lengai volcano on 4-5 Sep is pieced together, it appears that the eruption was probably a mainly explosive event while evidence of significant lava flows on the flanks becomes less. The observed "lava flows" could have been bush fires ignited by hot ejecta. In any case, there is little doubt that the observed ash cloud was the result of a significant explosive eruption and not just landslides on the steep flank.

It seems that the eruption at Lengai is indeed a major event and that explosive activity has taken or is taking place in addition to lava flows and probably, bush fires. According to local sources from the nearby Moivaro - Lake Natron Camp, Lengai first erupted at midnight and at 6 am on 4 September. A pilot reported ash rising to 20,000 ft (ca. 6 km). Ashfall was reported from Engaresero Village, but there are no reports on injuries or fatalities. The highly regarded Moivaro Tented Lodge near Lake Natron has been temporarily evacuated. lire toutes

A large eruption seems to be taking place at Lengai volcano, this time for real: On 4 Sept., reports started coming in that a large (natrocarbonatite?) lava flow is descending the West flank. A considerable ash plume was visible on satellite data.

As more news has become available, the news about an effusive flank eruption at Lengai around 15 July turns out to be probably false. The observed "ashcloud" was dust from a landslide. This demonstrates how difficult it is in this area to have robust information. The ongoing seismic activity in the Gregory Rift, however, is quite peculiar. lire toutes

Thomas, our correspondant in Arusha climbed Lengai last week and reports indirect signs of activity near the western rim of the crater, at the place where lava overflowed in the March 2006 eruption. this is his report: ... lire toutes
