According to local news, a seismic crisis is under way at the volcano and the volcano observatory in Goma thinks that a new eruption in coming days or weeks is likely.
"The eruption of Nyamulagira will have no impact on the famous volcano Nyiragongo, whose activity is in a normal state," said Kaco Karume, member of the Volcanic Observatory of Goma (OVG).
Nyamuragira (also spelled Nyamulagira) volcano is located 22 km north of Goma, the capital of North Kivu province. It erupts on average every 2 years. Its last eruption was in late 2011-early 2012.
