Gigantic volcano Mount Nyiragongo predicted to erupt, cities in danger

• Terrence Aym
If anyone had any doubt that the world's volcanoes are all becoming more active they need look no farther than the giant Mt. Nyiragongo in the east Congo. Vulcanologists monitoring the awakening giant believe that previous eruptions may be dwarfed by the eruption that may be coming. The volcano looms large, casting its ominous shadow across the city of Goma. The major city, and surrounding villages and smaller cities, has a total population of more than two million. During January 2002 lava covered one-third of the city.
