During 17-24 February, KVERT reported moderate seismicity at Kizimen, strong gas-and-steam activity, and a large thermal anomaly that was detected daily in satellite images. Video and satellite observations indicated both continued effusion of a large lava flow on the E flank and accompanying hot avalanches. A large avalanche on the E flank, W of the lava flow, was observed on 21 February, and an ash plume rose to an altitude of 1 km (3,280 ft) a.s.l. On 22 February about 20 avalanches were reported. read all
