Sheveluch, Kamchatka: Explosive-extrusive eruption of the volcano continues.

A growth of the lava dome continues, moderate ash explosions, fumarolic activity and incandescence of the dome summit and hot avalanches accompanies this process. Satellite data by KVERT showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano.

Explosions from 23h47 UTC on October 08 send ash up to 4-4.5 km a.s.l., and ash plume drift about 25 km to the south-east of the volcano.

Explosive-extrusive eruption of the volcano continues. Ash explosions up to 32,800 ft (10 km) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
Distance of ash plume/cloud of the volcano: 16 mi (25 km)
Direction of drift of ash plume/cloud of the volcano: SSE / azimuth 164 deg s.
