PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, February 07, 7:51 /ITAR-TASS/. The Shiveluch volcano in Kamchatka, Russia’s Far East, spewed ash to the height of 10 kilometres above the sea level in early hours on Friday, the Kamchatka office of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences told Itar-Tass.
“At 00:45 local time seismic activity started at Shiveluch,” the office said, adding that it posed no threat to the local population. “A series of quakes were registered. According to the seismic date, at 04:09 the volcano started ejecting ash from its crater. The eruption lasted almost five hours.”
Seismologists said at the moment Shiveluch stopped spewing ash.
