VLADIVOSTOK, November 17, /ITAR-TASS/. The volcanic ash has covered the Kamchatka settlement of Klyuchi one millimetre deep on Sunday. This volcanic event took place immediately after the ash had spewed from the crater of the volcano Klyuchevskoy at an altitude of up to eight kilometres. No threat exists to people living in the settlement of Klyuchi, the press service of the Far Eastern regional emergency situation centre reported.
On Sunday, the volcanoes Shiveluch and Karymsky are also erupting actively in Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia’s Far East. The clouds of ash are forming over the tops of the volcanoes, Kamchatka volcanologists said. The ash blanket is spreading in different directions at a distance of up to 50-80 kilometers. Temperature abnormalities are reported everywhere in the area. The air temperature is minus 17 degrees Celsius near the volcano Shiveluch, the air temperature reached plus 45 degrees Celsius on the volcano.
The flight hazard persists in the area of seven volcanoes of Kamchatka Territory (Shiveluch, Kizimen, Karymsky, Gorely, Plosky Tolbachik, Klyuchevskoy, Bezymyanny). This factor is caused by ash and aerosol tails, which are caused by in-depth magmatic processes. Weak volcanic emissions are reported on the volcanoes Shiveluch, Bezymyanny, Kizimen, Karymsky and Klyuchevskoy. The settlements, economic facilities, croplands are beyond the zone of volcanic emissions.
