Klyuchevskoy Volcano, Kamchatka, Russia - John Seach

A lava flow has begun down the SE slope of Klyuchevskoy volcano in Kamchatka, after the crater overfilled. The volcano continued to throw red-hot rocks to a height of 200 meters above the crater. The current eruption started in August 2009 after several months of inactivity. The eruption started slow and the intensity is rapidly growing. Klyuchevskoy volcano started a new eruptive cycle on 15th February 2007. Volcanic ash from that eruption drifted over 500 km across the Bering Sea at a height of 8.7 km.
