Kizimen Volcano, Kamchatka - John Seach

Several new fumaroles were formed at Kizimen volcano, Kamchatka in middle of November 2010. During the last week, seismic activity was above background levels. A helicopter flight around the volcano on 20th November showed several new fumaroles at summit and south-western flank of the volcano. Activity of an old fumarole "Revuschaya" (which is known since 1960) at the north-eastern volcanic flank decreased. A small amount of ash was visible on south-western flank of the volcano. On 17th November an ash plume rose to an altitude of 3 km. Kizimen volcano is at level YELLOW alert.
