PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, October 6. /TASS/. The Shiveluch volcano in Russia’s Far East has spewed ash to the height of 4.5 kilometers above the sea level, the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) told TASS on Thursday.
"The column of ash at the Shiveluch volcano rose to the height of 4.5 kilometers above the sea level. The ash cloud has spread for five kilometers to the west and north-wet," KVERT said.
According to the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s main department in the Kamchatka Krai, no ash falls were registered in any settlements in the region.
Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano in Kamchatka. The closest settlement - Klyuchi - is located in 47 kilometers from the volcano.
