Explosive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 19,700-26,240 ft (6-8 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
Explosive volcano eruption of Strombolian type began on 03 April and continues till present. A strong gas-steam activity of the volcano continues too. Satellite data by KVERT showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano on 01 and 05-07 April; the volcano was obscured by clouds in the other days of week.
During the eruption in 2015 of the Kliuchevskoi, a small lava flow had poured out on the southeast flank. This year, emissions of incandescent material are observed in the Southeast part of the central crater. Most likely, we will see in the near future, a lava flow at the same place, because it is there a decrease of the edge of the crater.
If the eruption is higher (as in 2013), the lava can flow in other directions.
