Hundreds of villagers have fled their homes on the slopes of Mount Ol Doinyo Lengai, in northern Tanzania, fearing an imminent volcanic eruption.
A BBC correspondent says lava is flowing from one side of the mountain, causing panic among the villagers.
Tremors measuring six on the Richter scale have shaken the area over recent days with aftershocks reaching Kenya.
Some 3,000 villagers were displaced last year after a volcanic eruption from the mountain.
Several mud-walled houses belonging to the Maasai herdsmen collapsed following tremors triggered by volcanic activity.
