A bright flash in the crater of the Avachinsky volcano was recorded by scientists of the Kamchatka branch of the Unified Geophysical Service (Unified Geophysical Survey) of the Russian Academy of Sciences on Monday night, December 9. Volcano activity is becoming more intense.


Scientists expect an eruption within a month. At the same time, rescuers have already warned residents of the region and tourists about a possible eruption. They were asked not to make independent trips to the volcano, since in its vicinity an excess of the maximum permissible concentration of gas during combined-cycle emissions can be observed.

Avachinsky volcano is located 25 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and is considered one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka. After the eruption in 1991, the crater was completely filled with lava, which froze and formed a cork.
