PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, April 06 /ITAR-TASS/. Volcano Shiveluch has erupted ash at an altitude of six kilometres above sea level in Russian Far East’s Ust-Kamchatsky municipal entity, Kamchatka branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences geophysical service stated on Sunday. The ash plume has spread northwest of the volcano towards Bay Ozernoy not affecting any settlements, the Kamchatka territorial emergency situation department said. No threat exists for settlements. The volcano is ranked with orange aeronautical code of high eruption hazard.
the norm is about 60 eruptions per year (i think?). since we're only a quarter of the way through the year.... 30 does seem a little high.
We had a record-breaking year in 2013 with 83 eruptions. We're well on our way to shattering that record this year.
