PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, December 10. /TASS/. The Shiveluch volcano in Russia’s Far East has spewed ash in the morning, the press service of the Russian Emergencies Ministry’s main department in the Kamchatka Krai said on Saturday.
"According to satellite data provided by the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT), the Shiveluch volcano spewed ash in the morning on December 10. The height (of the ash column) reached up to 11,000 meters above the sea level," the department said.
Due to wind gusts, the ash cloud spread for 106 kilometers in the north-north-eastern direction toward the Ozernovsky Bay. There are no settlements on the way of the ash cloud.
The distance to the nearest populated locality ― Ust-Kamchatka ― is 87 kilometers. No tourist groups were registered near the volcano.
