The last eruption occurred in 2002 when 250 people were killed

The government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo devised a plan to evacuate the residents of the eastern city of Goma, following the eruption of a huge volcano.

Mount Nyiragongo volcano spews enormous lava, the red smoke of which lit up the city sky at night.

The volcano, which is one of the most active in the world, is ten kilometers from the city.

The terror prompted Goma’s two million inhabitants to flee for their lives.
