Massive Volcanic Eruption Starts in Russia's Far East

An explosive volcanic eruption of the Plosky Tolbachik volcano began in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula on Tuesday, Russia's Research Institute of Volcanology and Seismology reports.

      The eruption at the 3,085-meter Plosky Tolbachik volcano began on November 27. It was given code orange (number three on the four-tiered USGS Volcano Alert Level), meaning it “poses limited hazards.”

      However, its activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft. Ash explosions up to 32,800 ft (10 km) a.s.l. are expected to occur any time. An ash fall was reported in the nearby village of Krasny Yar.

      Plosky Tolbachik volcano is located on the peninsula’s eastern coast, 343 km from the region’s capital of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. It erupted only 10 times since records began in 1740. The last eruption was registered in 1975-1976.
