MOSCOW, 10 March. /TASS/. A code of high threat to air traffic has been enforced in Kamchatka in Russian Far East following discharge of volcanic ashes by two Kamchatka volcanoes simultaneously, a source from a regional department of the Institute for studies of seismological activity told TASS on Tuesday. A cloud of gas-ash particles rising above the Kluchevsky and Zhupanovsky volcanoes is nearly five kilometers high, it said. A tail of ashes from the Zhupanovsky volcano has spread to a distance of 187 kilometers east of the volcano, and the ash tail from the other one has spread 92 kilometers southeast.
The Zhupanovsky volcano, situated 100 kilometers north of the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, is 2,958 meters high. The other volcano, which is 4,750 meters high, is situated barely 30 kilometers from the settlement of Klyuchi of the Ust-Kamchatsky district.
