News started to spread on twitter and other media that a new eruption of the volcano started today, including pictures from the 2010 eruption as (false) evidence.
An overflight today by members of Nord-Kivu's government showed only intense degassing from a pit crater (but no lava erupting), although they suggested that "an eruption is imminent".
While it is difficult to judge the situation from the current sources available, it seems that the eruption reports are a case of rumor spreading faster than actual evidence.
