Bezymianny volcano eruption news and activity updates:
Bezymianny volcano (Kamchatka): ash plume reported (but could be from nearby Klyuchevskoy instead)

Steam/ash plume from Klyuchevskoy volcano last nightLast night, Tokyo VAAC reported an ash plume from the volcano at 20:40 UTC, based on satellite data.
While it is entirely possible that activity at the lava dome of Bezymianny has picked up or that a collapse occurred which generated an ash plume, it could also be an ash plume from nearby Klyuchevskoy volcano (image).
At the moment, the latter possibility seems more likely. Cloud cover prevented direct observation to confirm whether or not there is new activity at Bezymianny. KVERT has not issued an alert about the latter.
