The Shiveluch volcano continues its active explosive phase on the Kamchatka Peninsula.
On Monday, 19 September, the volcano erupted sending ash and gases 7’000 meters above the crater. Crazy!
The Shiveluch volcano exploded at 7:14am local time (10:14om Moscow time) on September 19, 2016, sending a plume of ash and gases 10km above the sea level.
The height of ash emissions was extrapolated from the seismic data since clouds cover the volcanic peak. The atmospheric profile shows that the ash column is moving ,” the department said.
The plume of ash and gas travel in the northern and north-eastern direction.
Ashfalls have already been reported in surrounding villages.
As shown in the pictures, the Klyuchevskaya Sopka, also known as Kliuchevskoi, is currently raging from inside.
The Shiveluch volcano (3,283m) is the northernmost active volcano in the Eastern Range on the Kamchatka Peninsula. Will other Kamchatka volcanoes follow their path?
