VLADIVOSTOK, October 16 (Itar-Tass) —— The Kamchatka Shiveluch volcano erupted the ash and gas at a height of 10,500 meters above the sea level on Sunday. The volcano is literally ‘bombing’ the atmosphere, spewing the ash and gas at various heights, but the strongest eruption occurred at a height of more than ten kilometres for the past day, the Kamchatka branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences reported.
The eruption from a crater of 1.5 kilometres in diameter was followed by the avalanches by the pieces of volcanic rock. The residents of the settlement Klyuchi, which is situated 50 kilometres away from the volcano, could watch the volcano spewing the ash.
Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The volcano is 3,283 meters high. The highest active point of the volcano, named Young Shiveluch, is 2,500 meters above the sea level. The volcano has been active since September 1980 and is under permanent monitoring for more than 30 years.
Shiveluch is given the highest ‘red’ aviation colour code. This aviation colour code means that the gigantic volcano erupts “with major ash discharges in the atmosphere.” All the services concerned were informed about a hazard, which the volcanic ash and gases can pose for the aircraft engines.
