PETRPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, January 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s active volcano Shiveluch, located on the Kamchatka peninsula, spewed ash to a height of eight kilometers (4.9 miles), but the eruption poses no threat to nearby residential areas, local volcanic research group reported on Monday.
The cloud of ash, which the 3,283-meter (10,771 feet) Shiveluch churned out on Monday, moved in the western and southwestern directions passing four residential areas on its way.
Ash falls were registered in the town of Klyuchi, located some 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the volcano and with a population of 5,600.
Local Emergencies Ministry’s department warned tourism companies operating in the region against holding tours in areas located near the volcano.
There are over 150 volcanoes on the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia’s Far East, and up to 30 of them are active. Shiveluch has been regularly spewing out ashes for about 10 years.
