PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, April 28 (Itar-Tass) - The Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula has spewed a powerful vapour column to a height of up to 1.5 kilometres above the summit on Saturday.
The eruption of the giant mount that began on February 15 “so far is considerably weaker than the 2005 eruption, but the volcano activity is intensifying,” head of the Klyuchevskaya volcanic station Yuri Demyanchuk told Itar-Tass from the Klyuchi settlement (located 32 kilometres from the volcano) on Saturday.
According to the expert, this manifests itself in the constant intensification of seismic activity registered on the volcano. The amplitude of the volcanic tremor is growing,” the scientist indicated.
