Klyuchevskoy (Kamchatka): (9 Nov) The activity of the volcano has remained essentially unchanged at moderate levels characterized by effusive-explosive eruption.
A beautiful strombolian activity continues from the summit crater associated with lava spattering with ejecta thrown at an approximate height 300 meters above the crater. Gas-steam plume containing some amount of ash reached 23,000 ft (7,000 m) altitude and extending about 60 km to the east of the volcano.
