PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. One of the most active volcanoes on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, Karymsky, has spewed ash to an altitude of two kilometers above sea level, emergencies ministry’s regional department reports referring to data supplied by the Kamchatka Volcanic Response Team (KVERT).“An ash plume has spread 40 kilometers south-west of the volcano,” it reported, saying ash posed no threat for the local population. “The nearest settlement Koryaki is located 115 kilometers away,” the report said. Meanwhile, tourists have been warned against trips to the area. The volcano has been assigned the ’orange’ aviation color code, second after the highest — red code, warning about the hazard eruptions may pose to aircraft.
