Kamchatka volcano Shiveluch emits kilometer ashes of ash

Three powerful ash ejections to a height of seven, eight and a half and ten kilometers occurred on the northernmost volcano of Kamchatka, Shiveluch. Ashfalls can take place in the settlements of the Bystrinsky region, reports "Kamchatka-Inform" with reference to the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Russian Federation in the Kamchatka Territory.

“The ash plume spreads westward from the volcano. The settlements of the Bystrinsky municipal district are on the way of ash spreading. The distance to the nearest settlement, Anavgay village, is 160 km. In the village, a slight fall of ash particles is possible, however, due to the large distance from the volcano, the probability of ash fall in the villages of Anavgai and Esso is insignificant, ”the Ministry of Emergency Situations said.

Vulcan assigned an increased hazard code for aviation. Tourist organizations are recommended not to allow tourists to the area of ​​the volcano.

Shiveluch height is 3283 meters. This volcano is located in 450 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The nearest settlement, the village of Klyuchi, is removed from its foot on 50 km.
