Seismic activity has intensified on the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula
Seismic activity has intensified on the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano on Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula, the local branch of the Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAN) told Itar-Tass on Tuesday. About 200 seismic events have been registered in the area since Monday. Earthquakes were registered at a depth of 30 kilometres under the central crater. Thermal anomaly has also been observed on the volcano. According to scientists, there is no reason to say that the volcano will intensify activity in the coming weeks, but it is not ruled out that it will grow. The volcano is under permanent monitoring of experts. Klyuchevskaya Sopka is the highest active volcano in Eurasia. Its height exceeds 4.8 kilometres above sea level. The giant mount erupts once in five-six years. The most recent eruption was observed in winter-spring 2005. The volcano spewed ash and volcanic bombs. Lava streams from the crater went down the slopes. Now the volcano poses no threat for nearby populated localities. The nearest settlement Klyuchi is located some 30 kilometres from Klyuchevskaya Sopka.
