Shiveluch in Russia

Located in the north of Russia Shiveluch volcano began to be active, throwing out clouds of ash to a height of almost 10 kilometers. This event is taking place in the Far East, scientists said today. Shiveluch height is 3283 meters and its activity he started to show in May 2009, the clubs periodically spewing ash to a height of 3 to 10 km. According to the Far Eastern Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, strong eruption began at 5.59 am local time. The ash cloud spread to the east. And, if you want to see it, you only have to be at a distance of 40 km from the volcano, so that you can see what is happening. According to experts, this eruption is probably the most powerful this year. As for his activity in the past few years, this has resulted in a crater of a volcano Shiveluch became more and half, and slopes that are steeper than they were before.

And if at the moment the eruption does not pose a threat to nearby settlements, in case of further extension of such an amount of ash can be a serious problem, both for the environment and human health. Do not forget about the fact that so much ash can significantly hamper flights, as small particles contained in the ash can cause the problem of aircraft engines.
