Sheveluch volcano (Kamchatka): ash plume observed rising to 15,000 ft altitude

Webcam image of Shiveluch (KVERT) showing weak glow and a steam/ash plume rising from the dome
Lava dome growth continues. This morning, an explosion and/or a partial collapse produced a volcanic ash cloud rising to 15,000 ft (4.7 km) altitude this morning by VAAC Tokyo.
KVERT reports no changes in activity for the other 5 currently active volcanoes in Kamchatka (continuing lava effusion at Tolbachik, dome growth at Kizimen and Bezymianny, intermittent mild explosions at Karymsky, strong degassing at Gorely).
Monday, Apr 22, 2013
A possible explosion or partial lava dome collapse produced a modest ash plume yesterday rising to 12,000 ft (3.7 km) altitude (VAAC Tokyo). KVERT reports no significant changes and continues to record moderate tremor levels, indicating that magma continues to rise and slowly build up the lava dome.
Sunday, Apr 14, 2013
KVERT reports no significant change in the activity (seismic and surface). Lava flows continue to effuse from the southern fissure. Tremor remains high, although it has continued to slowly decrease. ...
Saturday, Apr 06, 2013
Moderate seismic activity and weak shallow earthquakes were registered. Hot avalanches (collapse of parts of the growing dome) and possibly explosions accompanying this process produced a plume rising to 20,000 ft (6 km) altitude yesterday. Strong degassing and steaming are continuous.
Tuesday, Apr 02, 2013
No changes in activity occurred. Moderate seismic activity accompanies ongoing lava dome growth, KVERT mentions.
Wednesday, Mar 20, 2013
The growth of the lava dome continues, accompanied by moderate seismic activity, and is visible as a large hot spot on MODIS satellite data.
