YAKUTSK, January 20. /TASS/. Eurasia’s largest volcano, Klyuchevskoi (aka Klyuchevskaya Sopka) woke up in the early hours of January 20, a source at the Kamchatka volcanic observatory told TASS.
“Klyuchevskoi’s volcanic activity intensified overnight to Tuesday,” he said. “It disgorged a red-hot blast to the elevation of 200 meters (above its crater), and the column of volcanic cinders reached 6,000 meters above sea level.”
A small stream of lava about 1,000 meters long was descending down the southeastern slope at the time of reporting and the eruptions continued.
The Klyuchevckoi, which is believed to be about 7,000 years old, has a variable height and it has been 4,385 meters tall since the previous eruption that occurred on August 15, 2013.
Apart from being the largest active volcano in Eurasia, it is also the tallest mountain in Russia outside the Caucasus.
All in all, the Kamchatka Peninsula has 29 active volcanoes.
