PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, December 12. /TASS/. An air traffic danger warning was announced in Russia’s Far East over the northern part of the Kamchatka Peninsula over volcanic ash emissions to altitudes of up to nine kilometers.
Air traffic is recommended to suspend in the area of Vostochny ridge. Ash from the Shiveluch volcano spreading for 350 kilometers may get in jet engines and put them out of order.
“Overnight the volcano has discharged ash. The height of an active dome is 2.5 kilometers above the sea level,” the press service of territorial emergencies department reported. Ash plume is being swept away south-eastwards to settlements.
The Shiveluch volcano, 3,283 kilometres high, is 47 kilometres away from first nearest large settlement Klyuchi.
