NOVA Volcano Under the City DVD

Image Not Available
The towering volcano of Mount Nyiragongo looms over the central African city of Goma, posing a lethal threat to it and its over 400,000 inhabitants. In 2002, rivers of lava poured through Goma's streets and destroyed 40% of the city, forcing tens of thousands to flee. A year later, with ominous gas clouds billowing over the crater rim, volcanologist Jacques Durieux led a team of specialists to Nyiragongo to determine when and why it is likely to erupt again.
