Mount Nyiragongo is a highly active stratovolcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Its last eruption occurred in May 2021, causing widespread damage and displacement of people living nearby. The lava from this volcano is known to flow at an exceptionally high speed, making it one of the most dangerous volcanoes on Earth. The volcano also produces lethal levels of carbon dioxide, known to locals as ‘mazuku‘, and acid rain which has poisoned the nearby village’s drinking water.
