Kamchatka volcanoes are not abating


9.06.11.Kamchatskie Karymskii, Kizmen and Shiveluch maintain increased activity. Representatives of the local branch of the Geophysical Service RAS reported being registered ash emissions from their craters, accompanied by earthquakes. Risk to human settlements there. Of volcanoes are continuously monitored.

According to seismic data, the volcano Shiveluch threw ash to a height of 3.1 to 5.5 meters above sea level. Height of emissions from the crater Kizimov could reach 4.8 kilometers. Karymsky threw volcanic dust to a height of 4.6 km above sea level. All three giants assigned an "orange" code warning of the danger they pose to aircraft.
