Nyiragongo is one of the world's active volcanoes with smoke and beautiful fire flames seen on a daily basis especially through the night. The most tragic erruptions of Nyiragongo happend between 1882, 1977, 1994 and 2002 with some lava flowing into lake Kivu recording a high number of fatalities. This caused numerous earth quakes around the towns of Goma in Congo and Gisenyi in Rwanda having several buildings collapse and many families abandoning their homes bacause of the daily fears of further erruptions.
