Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano (Tanzania), eruption news: false report on eruption

Monday Jul 23, 2007 01:46 AM | BY: TOM PFEIFFER

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.
