      The local scientists have already warned the aviation in the region and also issued an ash alert for Kamchatka's residents, advising them to stay indoors and stock up on food and water.

      Kamchatka, part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, is known for its active volcanoes, and Shiveluch, one of the region's biggest, has been erupting since 2009. Besides Shiveluch there are four big volcanoes which are active currently.
