PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 17. /ITAR-TASS/. The Karymsky volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula has again spewed ash to a height of up to two kilometres above sea level, the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) reports on Monday.
The ash plume stretched 100 for kilometres southeast of the volcano towards the Kronotsky Gulf. There are no populated localities on the way, the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry’s (EMERCOM) main department for the Kamchatka region tells Itar-Tass.
