PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, November 15, 15:38 /ITAR-TASS/. Increased seismic activity has been registered at the Karymsky volcano on Russia’s far eastern Kamchatka peninsula.
It has released plumes of ash to an altitude reaching two kilometers (1.24 miles) above sea level, an emergencies ministry official said on Friday, quoting data from the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team.
Readings suggest the volcano does not threaten populated areas but an “orange” aviation alert code has been assigned.
Local authorities have issued warnings of danger to aircraft from volcanic dust and gases. Travel agencies were cautioned against organising excursions to the area.
The 1,536-meter (5,039-foot) high Karymsky is the most active in Kamchatka's eastern volcanic zone and is graded a perfect symmetrical stratovolcano. Its activity increased dramatically in January 1996 and has continued with periodic eruptions until now.
Karymsky is located in the central part of Kamchatka’s eastern volcanic belt, 30 kilometers from the Pacific coast and 125 kilometres north of the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
