PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 4 (Itar-Tass) –The Shiveluch Volcano in Russia’s Kamchatka has spewed up ash to an altitude of 4.5 kilometers above sea level. There is no danger for the local settlements, the Kamchatka branch of the Russian Geophysical Service reported on Monday.
No ash fall has been registered in the nearby settlements, it said. Shiveluch is the northernmost and one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka. It is located 450 kilometers northeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Its height is 3,283 meters above sea level. Its eruptions are explosive. The giant volcano is active since September 1980.
It poses no danger to nearby populated localities. The nearest settlement, Klyuchi, is situated about 50 kilometers away from its foot.
The Plosky Tolbachik and Kizimen volcanoes are also active on the peninsula. They spew steam plumes and lava, but don’t pose danger for the local settlements either.
The volcanoes are constantly monitored. Rescuers are on duty at Plosky Tolbachek, ensuring the safety of tourists drawn there to watch lava flows in the active zone of the volcano.
