Nyiragongo volcano (DRCongo) activity update

Tuesday Oct 09, 2012 09:39 AM | DOOR: T

The following message from the Virunga Park suggests that both Nyiragongo and Nyamuragira are very active at the moment:
" As far as i can see from my window (with a view from the volcano, nothing has changed. The Nyiragongo is always active and the Nyamulagira has been active since Nov last year. both of them have been smoking continuously over the last months.

Trips are unfortunately not possible at the moment as the region is currently unsafe due to rebel insurgents. which unfortunately meant we had no choice but to close access to the park

Keep an eye on if anything changes we will post it there."
