PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, November 24. /TASS/. The Shiveluch volcano in Russia's Kamchatka has spewed two columns of ash six kilometers into the air, the local geophysical service department of the Russian Academy of Sciences told TASS on Thursday.
"Ashfall was recorded at 3:07 and 3:19 GMT. The volcano spewed two columns of ash to six kilometers above the sea level," a source in the department said.
According to the source, the volcano has been concealed in a cloud cover so there was no chance to view the ash columns.
"The aviation color code has been raised to orange as the volcano poses a threat to international and domestic flights passing over Kamchatka," the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) reported.
Shiveluch is one of the most active volcanos in Kamchatka. There are three elements of the volcano: the stratovolcano Old Shiveluch, an ancient caldera and the active Young Shiveluch with an elevation of about 2,500 meters.
