The Bezymyanny volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula has started to erupt, the Kamchatka branch of the geophysical service of the Russian Academy of Sciences told Itar-Tass.
The intensification of the giant mount's activity was registered at 00:30, local time (16:30, MSK on May 31). The most active phase lasted for 20 minutes, scientists say.

The Kamchatkan Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) has reported on 11 May that the level of Concern Colour Code for Bezymianny was raised to Orange due to a large thermal anomaly noted on satellite imagery. During 0330-0400 on 12 May, an explosive eruption may have occurred according to seismic data from Kozyrevsk.
Ash plumes were visible on satellite imagery drifting multiple directions. Ashfall was reported from the town of Klyuchi, about 47 km NE. A slight amount of the ash originated from Kliuchevskoi, an active volcano directly N of Bezymianny. Hot avalanches were observed and an ash plume rose to an altitude of 4 km a.s.l. On 13 May, an elongated thermal anomaly was seen on satellite imagery to the SE of the lava dome.

The Bezymianny volcano has erupted on the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia's Far East.

The eruption started at 08.25 a.m. GMT on Tuesday.

"A column of gases and ashes over the crater have reached the altitude of several kilometres...and avalanches of melted debris have been moving down the slope at a speed of about 30km/h. There is a threat to flights along the eastern coast and over of the peninsula" Alexei Ozerov, a senior researcher at the Institute of Volcanology and Seismology.

The eruption does not pose any threat to local population.
A cloud of ashes, which is expected to reach the height of 10 km and have a diameter of up to 1,000 km, had been slowly drifting toward the Pacific Ocean.

Prior to its noted 1955-56 eruption, the 2,869 metre high Bezymianny volcano had been considered extinct.
The modern Bezymianny volcano, much smaller in size than its massive neighbours Kamen and Kliuchevskoi, was formed about 4700 years ago over a late-Pleistocene lava-dome complex and an ancestral volcano that was built between about 11,000-7000 years ago. Three periods of intensified activity have occurred during the past 3000 years. The latest period, which was preceded by a 1000-year quiescence, began with the dramatic 1955-56 eruption. This eruption, similar to that of Mount St. Helens in 1980, produced a large horseshoe-shaped crater that was formed by collapse of the summit and an associated lateral blast. Subsequent episodic but ongoing lava-dome growth, accompanied by intermittent explosive activity and pyroclastic flows, has largely filled the 1956 crater.

The volcano's name means "nameless".
