Ol Doinyo Lengai volcano showing signs it may erupt, Tanzania

The Ol Doinyo Lengai, called the Mountain of God by the Maasai people is showing signs it may erupt. This is the only volcano in the world that sometimes erupts natrocarbonatite lava, a highly fluid lava that contains almost no silicon.

According to Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi, reporting from the foothills of the volcano, Old Doinyo Lengai is now threatening nearby villages and three major sites of early human development.

The last known eruptive phase of this volcano took place from April 9, 2017 to ~August 12, 2018. The previous eruptive phase lasted from June 22, 2011 to ~July 5, 2014.
