Journal Group XVII's Journal: Nyamuragira Continues to Erupt

Mount Nyamuragira in Virunga National Park continues to erupt for a fourth day. Cases of cholera are being reported from nearby towns as the volcanic soot and ash contaminate drinking water. It hasn't yet been reported whether Virunga's mountain gorillas, currently facing extinction, are likely to suffer from the effects of contaminated food and water.

The Centers for Disease Control has prepared a fact sheet on the health effects of volcanic eruptions.
