Kampala — SMALL earthquakes are expected in Uganda as a volcano brews in neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), geology officials have said, reports Charles Wendo.
Scientists in Goma, DRC, on Thursday reported that they had detected "very fast" earth movements, indicating that Mt. Nyamuragira near Goma town was about to explode.
Uganda's Commissioner for Geology, Joshua Tuhumirwe, yesterday said the reports that an eruption loomed on Mt. Nyamuragira was not surprising. He said whereas they were yet to analyse data from Uganda's earthquake monitoring stations, the tremors associated with such an eruption was likely to affect Uganda.
