New lava lake reappears in the crater of Nyiragongo volcano

A new lava lake reappears in the crater of the Nyiragongo volcano in eastern DR Congo, four months after a major eruption killed 32 people in May 2021.

After the eruption in late May, the disappearance of lava from the crater raised fears that it remained buried under Goma, but now it has reappeared.

The reappearance of a lava lake in the crater of the Nyiragongo volcano in eastern DR Congo is a good sign, experts said Sunday, four months after a major eruption killed 32 people.

The May 22-23 eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano spewed lava that buried houses beneath it, stopping just outside the northern edge of Goma, a city of about 600,000 people.
