The northernmost active volcano of Kamchatka — Shiveluch — emits a column of ash and gas up to a height of 10 km. According to scientists, the recent Shiveluch has been quite active. Increased activity of Shiveluch volcano, whose height is about 3.3 km above sea level, started in May 2009
Last night the Shiveluch volcano threw several columns of smoke and volcanic ash. Release of huge masses of ash occurred less than an hour. For the past day in the vicinity were several microearthquakes and rockfalls. In addition, the construction of the volcanic events occur, accompanied by dust-gas emissions. Shiveluch assigned red — the highest code of danger. According to experts, it is a danger to aviation and leisure travelers.
In Kamchatka volcanoes erupt as Kizimen and Karymsky. Ash and gas emissions from their craters reach a height of 3.1 — 5.2 km above sea level. The eruption is accompanied by continuous volcanic tremors and earthquakes. Both volcanoes have orange code. This means that emissions of ash and gas from their craters can be hazardous to aviation. Loop from Kizimov stretches for 400 km. Height Kizimov formed 12 thousand years ago, today is 2485 m height Karymskii — 1536 m, he was born 6300 years ago.
