Klyuchevskoy , Kamchatka : Lava flow 500 meters long that empties from the central crater.

Lava flow 500 meters long that empties from the central crater on the southeast slopes of Klyuchevskoy.

The lava flow up to 500 meters began to flow from the central crater on the southeast slopes of the highest volcano in Eurasia – the Klyuchevskoy. This is reported by the agency “RIA Novosti” with reference to the note by the FEB RAS.

The lava began to spread during the night of April 25. Now the luminous flux is up to 500 meters and flows on the southeast slope of the central crater. Lava emissions were preceded by a series of seismic events, earthquakes and ash emissions, according to experts.
Scientists continue to monitor the eruption with the help of special devices. Those do not make predictions on how will evolve the strength of emissions. Note that the eruption of the volcano Klyuchevskoy began on April 3.

On Monday night lava flows from the South-Eastern slope of the Klyuchevskoy volcano in Kamchatka extended up to 500 meters down the mountain, with molten material and ash being ejected to a height of 200 meters above the peak. Since the eruption of April 3rd, the volcano has repeatedly ejected ash plumes up to 6 km above sea level.

Klyuchevskaya Sopka (Klyuchevskoy volcano) is a fabulous strato-volcano on the East of Kamchatka, reaching to a height of 4,850 meters. Located some 360 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, the volcano is one of the biggest in all Eurasia. The volcano is also one of the most active in the world, and is part of the natural Volcanoes of Kamchatka UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Klyuchevskaya volcano’s first recorded eruption occurred in 1697, and since then it has been almost continuously active. First climbed in 1788 by Daniel_Gauss and two other mountaineers, the volcano has not been ascended since a 1931 eruption killed several climbers.
