PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, September 19. /TASS/. The northernmost active volcano in Kamchatka, Shiveluch, has spewed a seven-kilometer ash column in the air, the local department of the Geophysical Service at the Russian Academy of Sciences told TASS on Monday.
"According to seismic data, the ash was spewed at 7:14am local time (10:14om Moscow time) at the height of seven kilometers above the sea level. For now, the volcano is covered in clouds. The atmospheric profile shows that the ash column is moving in the northern and north-eastern direction," the department said.
The length of the cloud is not known. According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s department in the Kamchatka Krai, no ash falls were registered in nearby settlements.
