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.
