These circumstances have forced the government “as a preventive measure to activate a progressive evacuation plan for residents as soon as possible before the threat is completely eliminated,” the Portfolio reported.

It was also reported on Twitter that electricity was temporarily restored in Goma, while the line damaged after the volcanic eruption that linked Matebe and Goma was restored.

The latest Nyiragongo volcanic eruption, which occurred on Saturday, left more than thirty dead and also caused power outages that affect 60 percent of the city’s population. Due to material damage, there are also problems with the power supply of rivers of lava.
