PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. The Karymsky volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula has spewed a two-kilometer ash column. The eruption poses no hazard to the local population, the Kamchatka Volcano Eruption Response Team (KVERT) told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.
The ash plume has spread to a distance of 50 kilometres southeast. There are no populated localities on its way, experts said.
The orange aviation color code has been assigned to the volcano. It warns of the hazard to aircraft posed by volcanic ash particles.
The Karymsky volcano has been highly active since the beginning of March. It has been spewing ash columns to a height of up to two thousand meters above sea level.
Karymsky is one of the most active volcanoes of Kamchatka. Its height is 1,536 meters. The volcano that belongs to the central part of the Eastern volcanic belt of Kamchatka is located 30 kilometres from the Pacific coast and 125 kilometres from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. There are no settlements in close proximity to the volcano. The volcano has been active since January 1996.
