Massive volcano eruption now imminent in Tanzania… the “Mountain of God” is set to blow

Geologists warn that Tanzania’s most active volcano, Ol Doinyo Lengai, will erupt in the very near future. Archaically known as the “Mountain of God” by the Maasai people, Ol Doinyo Lengai will “explode imminently” and “poses a significant threat” to the surrounding areas, as reported on Scientists believe that an eruption could effectively obliterate key sites in human history, including a patch of land that shows footprints left by our ancestors 3.6 million years ago.

Ol Doinyo Lengai towers over the Tanzanian landscape at 2,331 meters and is located only 70 miles from invaluable historic sites. One of these is a portion of dried volcanic ash that has impressions of footsteps made by five members of the Australopithecus afarensis species. These early hominins are best known by the fossil skeleton “Lucy.” Scientists describe this footprint site as priceless.

Unfortunately, this site is at risk of being lost forever, should Ol Doinyo Lengai explode. The possibility of this happening is likely, claim geophysicists who have been observing the volcano’s activity since the start of this year. Data from their sensors showed that portions of the volcano were lifting upwards — concrete evidence of an impending eruption, they say. Dr. Sarah Stamps, one researcher studying Ol Doinyo said on, “Several subsequent signals were also seen in real-time with additional on-the-ground observations by our local technician. These signals prompted rapid responses by our team to install three new real-time stations.”

Dr. Stamps said that these new sensors recorded ever-increasing activity within Ol Doinyo, suggesting an imminent explosion. “Imminent in our case means in one second, in a few weeks, a couple of months, or a year or more,” she said. “There are increased ash emissions, earthquakes, uplift at small volcanic cones, and an ever widening crack at the top of the volcano on the west side. These are all signs of volcanic deformation that will likely lead to an eruption sooner rather than later.”
