VLADIVOSTOK, April 17 (Itar-Tass) —— The Shiveluch Volcano in Kamchatka has been erupting all day long, with the tallest ash and gas emission reaching twelve kilometers above the sea level, the Kamchatka branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Geophysical Service said.
There were also emissions to the heights of 5,000, 6,900 and 9,500 meters. The volcano was awarded the red aviation code, which meant that ash emitted from its crater might endanger aircraft flying over Kamchatka.
Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula. The turbulent mount is located 450 kilometers northeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Its eruptions are abrupt. There were outbreaks of volcano activity rated by experts as catastrophic in 1864 and 1964.
Shiveluch is 3,283 meters tall, and its crater has a diameter of 1.5 kilometers. The volcano has been under constant monitoring for more than 30 years.
