Koryaksky volcano news & activity updates

Koryaksky volcano (Kamchatka), eruption news: new activity - ash emissions

Thursday Dec 25, 2008 09:39 AM |

Koryaksky volcano, one of Kamchatka's most majestic stratovolcanoes, near Petropavlovsk in the SE, began erupting late on 24 December.
According to KVERT, the volcano emitted a dense ash plume that rose to around 4 km altitude and extended more than 60km north-east of the volcano, as well as a weaker plume that extended 140km north-east.
Visual observations indicate that the new activity originated at a vent at around 3km a.s.l. on the north-western flank of the volcano, from which a dark column rose about 200-300m.
The only obvious precursory signs of the activity were an audible loud explosion sound and two earthquakes at 5km below the volcano on 23 December.

Koryaksky's last eruption was in 1956-57.
