PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 12. /ITAR-TASS/. One of the most active volcanoes on Russia’s Kamchatka peninsula, Karymsky, once again spewed ash on Wednesday, this time to an altitude of 1.5 kilometers above sea level, emergencies ministry’s regional department reports referring to data supplied by the Kamchatka Volcanic Response Team (KVERT).
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. “Recommendations have been issued for residents of Koryaki, Dalny, Malka and other settlements located close to Karymsky, as to what to do in case of ash fall,” the report said. In particular they were asked to shut the windows and doors and to avoid getting out or use face pieces, it said.
Karymsky is among the most active volcanoes on Kamchatka. Its height is 1,536 meters above sea level. The volcano is situated 30 kilometers from the Pacific coast and 125 kilometers north of regional centre Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. There are no settlements located close to the volcano. The giant has been active since January 1996.
