Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano (Tanzania), eruption update

22:27 PM | AUTEUR : TOM PFEIFFER

The activity at Lengai volcano, that started around 30 March is still enigmatic. According to information compiled by our colleague Fred Belton, a lava flow and lava fountains were emitted on the 30th, but there were no ash emissions. A steam plume was visible that may have been mistakenly described as ash in news reports. According to an observer in Tanzania, on 4 April a very large lava flow was visible on the volcano's W flank. The lava flow was over 1 km long and had traveled down the flank of the volcano and into a gorge. There were no signs that the flow was still hot. Photographs revealed that another lava flow may have traveled W of the volcano on 3 or 4 April. On 7or 8 April, active lava was contained within a new lava lake (?) at the summit. There are contradictory reports about evacuations evacuations from villages near the volcano.
