The largest gas and ash emission in five years from Mount Shiveluch, began at 3 p.m. local time (6 a.m. Moscow time, 2 a.m. GMT) at an altitude of 6 kilometres or 9 kilometres above sea level.
Clouds of volcanic ash are spreading to the northeast of Kamchatka's northernmost volcano with an altitude of 3,283 meters, posing a threat to people's health and air flights. Volcanic tremors are being registered in the nearby area.

Mount Shevutich, a volcano on the Russian far-eastern Kamchatka Peninsula, is spewing gas and ash to heights of up to 5,000 feet.
Satellite images show clear signs of a thermal anomaly in the area.
Residents nearby might face ashfall and mud slides from the slope of Mt. Shiveluch.

Air traffic in the vicinity might also be endangered.

No seismic monitoring is currently being conducted at Mt. Shiveluch because a February eruption of the volcano destroyed a research base and a monitoring station.
The last eruption on February 27 destroyed the western part of Mt. Shiveluch's crater. An ash cloud about 150 kilometres wide spread over 700 kilometres to the west of the volcano across Kamchatka and the Okhotsk Sea.
