KVERT webcam image showing the first pyroclastic flow at Shiveluch yesterday
Sunday, Aug 14, 2016
The activity of the volcano remains essentially unchanged at currently low to moderate levels. The slow growth of the lava dome continues as viscous (sticky) lava accumulates in the dome. A (small) part of the inherently unstable dome collapsed yesterday morning and generated a pyroclastic flow that traveled down the SW valley between the dome and the remnants of the 1964 collapse scar, which forms a horse-show shaped wall around the dome. ...

Friday, Jul 29, 2016
The effusive and explosive activity at the volcano continue at currently relatively low levels. Occasional small avalanches occur from the active dome, but little or no glow can be seen on night-time webcam imagery, suggesting that the effusion rate is at the lower end at the moment. [more]

Wednesday, Jul 13, 2016
The volcano's activity has been comparably low recently, but continues as viscous lava rises and accumulates at the active lava dome. A small collapse occurred yesterday evening, triggering a pyroclastic flow on the SW flank of the dome and producing an ash plume that rose to approx. 3.5 km above sea level. ... [more]
