Powerful Volcano Eruption in Kamchatka

Russia
An eruption of the most northern active volcano in Kamchatka – Shiveluch occurred this night and appeared to be one of the most powerful eruptions of the recent years. Powerful flows of ash were coming from the volcano crater along with gas flows and fragments of magma substances with the temperature reaching 800 degrees Centigrade.

Ash belches went up to 10-12 kilometres high. Satellite photos distinctly show a 600-kilometre ash plume going west from the volcano.
