PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, June 8 (Itar-Tass) — The Shiveluch volcano in Kamchatka maintains intensified activity. Ash spews from its crater to a height of more than 10 kilometres above sea level are possible anytime, the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) reported on Friday.
According to the KVERT classification, Shiveluch is assigned the “orange” aviation colour code. The services ensuring flight safety on both Kamchatka and international air routes in the area of ··the peninsula have been warned about the danger the volcano’s aerosol and ash plumes can pose to aircraft. There is no threat to the nearby settlements.
Shiveluch has been displaying high activity throughout the week. According to KVERT, on June 2 the giant mount ejected ash to a height of 8.5 kilometres, on June 5, according to seismic data, there was an ash spew from its crate to a height of 8 kilometres. On other days the height of ash spews from its crater did not exceed 4 - 6 kilometres above sea level. Ash plumes from the eruption on different days spread to distances of 150 to 250 kilometres to the south and the northeast of the volcano, depending on wind direction.
Shiveluch is the northernmost and one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka. It is located 450 kilometres northeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The nearest settlement - Klyuchi, with a population of about 5.6 thousand, is located 50 kilometres from its foot. The volcano has been active since 1980. It is under permanent monitoring of experts.
