Kharimkotan volcano is cut by 2 breached horseshoe-shaped depressions caused by debris avalanches from slope failure on the E and NW sides. Their related debris-avalanche deposits form large broad peninsulas on the east and NW coasts.
More evidence of slope failures followed by plinian eruptions are found in sea cliffs of the island.
The upper half of the volcano is still covered by thick ash deposits from the catastrophic eruption in 1933, one of the largest in the Kuriles during historic times. (Pho...

1933 eruption & tsunami
The eruption was one of the largest known of the Kurile Islands. It destroyed the summit cone (Severgin cone) and caused a debris avalanche that reached the sea and produced a tsunami that devastated the island's coast and reached Onekotan and Paramushir Islands, killing two persons.
