Threat of New Volcanic Eruption Prompts Residents to Flee Goma

Residents were told to evacuate from 10 neighborhoods in Goma, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, on May 27, due to the threat of another volcanic eruption and repeated earthquakes.

This footage, by Elie Kasereka, shows a long line of traffic as people leave the city.

The evacuation comes in the wake of the eruption of Mount Nyiragongo on May 22, which killed at least 32 people and prompted tens of thousands of people to flee.
