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.
The "orange" aviation colour code warning about possible hazard the volcano may pose to aircraft has been assigned to Karymsky. All the local aviation services have been warned.
Karymsky is one of the most active volcanoes of Kamchatka. Its height is 1.536 metres above sea level. The volcano belongs to the central part of the Eastern volcanic belt of Kamchatka.

Karymsky has been active since January 1996.
