Bezymianny volcano (Kamchatka): increased seismic activity, eruption warning
KVERT raised the alert level of the volcano to orange because increased seismic activity has been detected recently. The last major eruption of the volcano was an explosion on 1 Sep 2012.

According to the Russian volcanologists, this seismicity could suggest that fresh magma started to rise within the volcano and/or a new phase of lava extrusion has already started at the summit. This process which is often accompanied by explosive activity (when gasses inside the fresh very viscous magma are trapped and accumulate to build up pressure).
In addition, the fact that the volcano has been more or less quiet for almost two years could suggest the presence of a solid plug currently clogging the conduit, in which case a larger explosion that clears it is a realistic scenario.

Weak effusive activity continues, evidenced by steaming/degassing and a thermal anomaly at the lava dome visible on satellite data. KVERT has no seismic data, because the ongoing eruption at nearby Klyuchevskoy obscures the seismic activity from Bezymianny. ... Lees alle
