Bezymianny volcano (Central Kamchatka Depression, Kamchatka) activity update: Significant increase in activity- Aviation Colour Code Red

Friday Mar 15, 2019 13:32 PM | BY: MJFLEGEND

Activity has been increasing over the last few days and has done so significantly in the last 12 or so hours. KVERT reports many avalanches from the lava dome (due to new lava being extruded) and a low level ash plume is ongoing.

The Aviation Colour Code has been raised to Red because there is a strong chance of a new large explosion- the most recent was in January.
