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.
