A new phase of eruptions started on 8 Nov. An initial explosion at 21:55 (UTC) on 7 Nov produced an ash plume that rose to approx. 10 km altitude and drifted SE.
Several smaller explosions with ash emissions have been following during the past days. A plume can be seen extending over 250 km length to the southeast from Kamchatka.
