Lava threatens to bury town on the island of Fogo

Lava is moving close to the village of Portela, near the community of Cha das Caldeiras, situated within the crater of the Pico do Fogo on the island of Fogo [means ‘fire’ in Portuguese,] where more than 1,200 people have been evacuated.

A local vulcanologist reportedly told state-owned Radio Cape Verde the first explosion that occurred on Sunday was “much greater than the one in 1995,” which deposited a layer of ash across the island.

“The eruption was very powerful, but we are appealing to the people to stay calm,” a government minister said.

The eruption was a level 3 on the 9-level volcanic explosivity index, the minister said.

Fogo is one of nine inhabited islands comprising Cape Verde in West Africa.
