Mount Nyiragongo: DR Congo residents flee as volcano eruptshttps://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-57215690
The volcano, Nyiragongo is near the eastern border of DRC adjacent to Rwanda. Residents of Goma are fleeing. In 2002, Nyiragongo's eruption killed 250 people and left ~120,000 homeless.
As of Sunday morning, lavas flows stopped. But, for how long?
Goma is on the edge of Lake Kivu on the Democratic Republic of Congo's border with Rwanda. The current metro area population of Goma in 2021 is 670,000, according to a projection by the UN, World Bank and others.
Peyre-Costa said a number of nongovernmental organizations in the region believe Goma's population is closer to 1 million.

A maximum elevation of the lava lake was recorded at about 3,250 m (10,660 ft) prior to the January 1977 eruption – a lake depth of about 600 m (2,000 ft). Following the January 2002 eruption, the lava lake was recorded at a low of about 2,600 m (8,500 ft), or 900 m (3,000 ft) below the rim. The level has gradually risen since then. Nyiragongo and nearby Nyamuragira are together responsible for 40 per cent of Africa's historical volcanic eruptions.
