VLADIVOSTOK, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. An ash column spewed by the Shiveluch volcano in Kamchatka, Russia’s Far East, left away settlements. No ash fall was registered, Yuri Deminchuk, head of a volcanologist observatory, located in the village of Klyuchi, approximately 50 kilometers from the volcano, said.
The volcano’s active part continues to spew gases to the height of 1 kilometer.
Early on Tuesday Shiveluch ejected ash from its crater to the height of 8.5 kilometers above the sea level. There were two eruptions that continued 13 minutes, the Kamchatka office of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences told Itar-Tass.
Shiveluch is the Kamchatka Peninsula’s northernmost active volcano. It is located 450 kilometers northeast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The absolute height of its main peak is 3,283 meters. Its highest active part known as Young Shiveluch is 2,500 meters and its crater diameter is 1,500 meters. Young Shiveluch has been active since September 1980. Scientists have been regularly observing the volcano for over 30 years. The most recent catastrophic eruptions of Shiveluch were recorded in 1854 and 1964.
At present, the volcano poses no threat to nearby settlements. The Emergencies Ministry recommended travel agencies to refrain from making tours to the eruption area.
