PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, August 10. /TASS/. Klyuchevskoy volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East has spewed ash up to seven kilometers into the sky, the Kamchatka Volcanic Response Team (KVERT) told Tass on Wednesday.
"The volcano continues erupting. The ash plume has spread 264 kilometers east and southeast of the volcano," its source said.
An ‘orange’ aviation alert code has been assigned to the volcano, second after the highest - red code, warning about the hazard eruptions may pose to aircraft flying on local and international routes.
No ash fall has been registered in settlements of the region, the Kamchatka department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations reports.
The Klyuchevskoy, also known as the Klyuchevskaya Sopka, is located 360 km to the north-west of the capital of the Kamchatka Krai, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The nearest town, Klyuchi, is separated from it by a distance of 30 km and is home to about 5,000 people at present.
The volcano, which is believed to be about 7,000 years old, has the height of 4,750 meters above the sea level. Apart from being the largest active volcano in Eurasia, it is also the highest mountain in Russia outside the Caucasus.
The volcano started spewing ash in early April. Scientists say the current volcanic activity is moderate.
All in all, the Kamchatka peninsula has 29 active volcanoes.
