The Lake Nyos disater, on 21th august 1986.
Thirty one years ago, the most deadly natural mass killing in Cameroon. Suddenly all living things were asphyxiated. Some thing that just happened earlier in Lake Manoun. Was nature using the first as a test? Just to paint the master piece in august 1986? Today, nobody can give the answer to that question. Would it happen again? In a first place what really happened on the 21th august 1986 in the lake Nui from t real name? Nyos is just the name of the village which happens to be close.
Situated on top of a dead volcano, this particular place is among the most strange on earth. Some scientist saying it will happen again the big question here is when? with the lake getting at its highest level of water. One can predict at least a flood the coming days, weeks, months or years. In cameroon like the neighboring Nigeria the population is on waiting lake_nyos
Why should the U.N. and the world be concern about the treat? because there is a similar lake in the democratic republic of congo. There are millions of people live near the lake. A similar eruption to lake nyos would be catastrophic.
In 1986 we had 1700+ dead.
In congo 30km from the lake you have around 500,000+.
This is why the lake Nyos threat remain. and all similar lakes need to be at watch. we can prevent the natural disater. we can be prepare for what comes next. after the irreparable have occur, first aid. Remember it happens to lake Manoun as a test. nobody took the threat seriously. In lake nyos we where like how come and who did it? For the sake of people living nearby, animals, and all breathing live. Nature can not be stop, It can be monitor as to have a plan. The plan is your life insurance. CRTV
