Limnic Eruptions: The Rarest Natural Disaster
Early in the morning of August 21, 1986, in a valley near Lake Nyos, Cameroon, something horrible happened.
1,746 people were killed, as were over 3,500 cattle and almost every other animal that breathed air.
There were no signs of violence or destruction. Everyone and everything seemed to have simply died.
They were the victims of one of Earth's rarest and most frightening disasters.
