How much of a threat does the Nyiragongo Volcano pose for the nearby city of Goma?

    Apparently previous lava flows reached the outskirts of the city, and Nyiragongo is very active. Recent eruptions indicate some of the pressure may have been released, or they could indicate the beginning of another series. Very little is known about the composition of the interior of the Earth which is what makes events like Earthquakes and Volcanoes so unexpected and catastrophic. Vulcanologist can now indicate when an eruption is about to occur due to a special kind of tremor which happens before an event. Also, there is some swelling of the rock around the caldera of the Volcano. Assuming there is monitoring equipment on the Volcano, the city of Goma could be evacuated before a large eruption.
