PEROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Volcano Kizimen on Kamchatka has spewed ash to an altitude of 4,5 km above sea level. The ash plume stretched northwest. There is no danger for residential areas, the Kamchatka office of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences reported on Saturday.
High seismic activity is recorded on the volcano. Over the past 24 hours, 93 local quakes were recorded on the giant. A glow is seen over the top at night. It indicates that there is hot lava in the crater. Volcanic rock falls from the slopes.
The volcano may create danger for local flights. The appropriate services are warned about it.
Kizimen, 2.5 km high, is located 265 km north of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The last time, it erupted in 1928-29. After that, the volcano was "asleep" until 2009. Seismic activity has been recorded near Kizimen since the summer of 2010, and since the early winter of 2011, the giant from time to time spews ash. The volcano is constantly monitored.
