The new summit lava dome of Kizimen seems to have undergone a larger collapse event earlier this morning, as our colleagues on activolcans.info reported. What was likely a pyroclastic flow could be seen on webcam images. Intense steaming was seen on both the northern and eastern flank, suggesting that both sides were affected by the flow. Ash emissions reported shortly after by Tokyo VAAC reached an altitude of about 3600 m altitude.
