Shiveluch volcano, Kamchatka: large pyroclastic flows by lava dome collapse generate ash plumes reaching 30,000 ft (10 km) altitude

A series of larger dome collapse events took place today, producing large pyroclastic flows and an ash plume that rose to about 30,000 ft (10 km) altitude.
As the webcam video shows, at least 2 major pyroclastic flows as well as hot mud flows (lahars, caused by rapid snow melt) were generated this afternoon, the first and largest between 01:24-01:40 (UTC), and the second one shortly afterwards from around 01:41-01:50. The first flow seems to have reached a run-out length of about 10 km to the SW:
Shiveluch's active lava dome has been in an elevated state of activity over the past days and produced frequent ash explosions and avalanches.
Monday, Nov 25, 2013
Explosive and effusive activity continue. Occasional clear weather webcam images show strong steaming (with some ash?) and warm or hot pyroclastic deposits from recent block avalanches from the growing lava dome. A possible explosion this morning produced an ash plume reported to flight level 170 (17,000 ft / 5 km) altitude and extending SE. (VAAC Tokyo)
Wednesday, Nov 06, 2013
Activity remains elevated. A new ash plume (likely from another partial dome collapse or explosion) was detected this morning at 03:22 GMT at an estimated altitude of 14,000 ft (4,2 km) extending to the east.
Monday, Nov 04, 2013
An small ash plume rising to 12,000 ft (3,6 km) was detected at 11:00 UTC by VAAC Tokyo this morning (20:00 local time), suggesting another eruption (likely partial collapse from the dome). Video data show increased incandescence at that time, confirming this interpretation.
Sunday, Nov 03, 2013
Extrusion of viscous lava at the dome continues to feed at least 2 thick lava flows on the SW, NW and NE slopes. Two larger partial dome collapses occurred yesterday, producing pyroclastic flows and ash plumes that rose to altitudes of 23,000 ft (7 km). ...
Tuesday, Oct 22, 2013
The growth of the lava dome continues along with strong degassing/steaming and occasional explosions that produce ash plumes rising to up to 4-6 km altitude.

Colima volcano photos
: This beautiful stratovolcano in western Mexico is one of the most active volcanoes on the American continents. It is known for its often spectacular explosions and sometimes glowing avalanches.
Ijen volcano photos
: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
: Witnessing a volcanic eruption from close is an unforgettable experience. We offer a wide variety of tours and expeditions to active volcanoes worldwide.
Volcanoes in the Solar System
: The Earth is not the only place with volcanic activity. Active volcanism also occurs at at least 3 other bodies in our Solar System.
