PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, June 25 (Itar-Tass) — The Shiveluch volcano in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula ejected ash to an altitude of 9.5 kilometers above sea level, a spokesman for the Kamchatka branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Geophysical Service told Itar-Tass on Monday.
An earthquake lasting three minutes shook the volcano at 15:02 local time (07:02 Moscow time).
There is no visual information about eruptions as Shiveluch is covered with thick clouds. No emissions of volcanic dust were registered in neighbouring settlements.
Flight safety services were informed about possible threat volcano ash and gases may pose to aircraft engines.
Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula. It is located 450 kilometers northeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The village of Klyuchi, where 5,600 people reside is located 50 kilometers from the volcano’s foot.
The volcano has been active since 1980.
Specialists say at present Shiveluch poses no threat to neighbouring populated settlements.
