The Ebeko volcano has awoken with a jolt at the North Kuril island of Paramushir in the Russian Far East
The Ebeko volcano has awoken with a jolt at the North Kuril island of Paramushir in the Russian Far East. According to the spokesperson for the Sakhalin Region's Main Civil Defense and Emergency Department, the seismic activity of the volcano has increased considerably and the temperature in its crater has risen, with the volcano being situated just 7 km away from the city of Severo-Kurilsk. Ebeko's crater is trailing a steam plume about 500 m high, and sulphurous gas can be smelled in Severo-Kurilsk. The state of the volcano indicates an eruption is possible in the near future, the press service reported. In such a case, ash fallout and eruptive tuffs might hit the city. A power generation plant and the central city hospital are within the danger zone. The Ebeko volcano is 1,156 m high above sea level. Last time, it erupted between 1987 and 1990. The volcano erupts roughly every 10-30 years, the spokesperson said.
