Bezymianny volcano (Kamchatka): strong explosion this morning, ash to 50,000 ft altitude

Wednesday Dec 20, 2017 11:21 AM | BY: T

Massive explosion at Bezymianny volcano this morning (KVERT webcam)
Massive explosion at Bezymianny volcano this morning (KVERT webcam)
A very large explosive eruption occurred at the volcano this morning (4am UTC, 4pm afternoon local time). An eruption column rose to estimated 50,000 ft (15 km, flight level 500) altitude and has been drifting northeast for about 85 km.
KVERT rose the alert level of the volcano to red, but later lowered it back to orange as the eruption, presumably a vulcanian event (caused by sudden released of overpressure in the conduit), seems to have been short-lived.
Strong steaming continues to be observed at the volcano and new explosions cannot be ruled out to occur with little to no warning.
