Zhupanovsky volcano (Kamchatka): possible new eruption reported

A possible new eruption could have occurred yesterday at the volcano, but it could not be confirmed so far. Based on a pilot report KVERT and VAAC Tokyo alerted about a possible ash plume rising from the volcano at estimated 6 km altitude. The alert status of the volcano was raised from green to yellow.
If the report is true, it would be the second eruption of the volcano within a relatively short time, the last being from 24 Nov past year. However, no volcanic ash plume could be detected on satellite imagery so far and it could well be a false eruption report.
