One of 29 active volcanoes on Kamchatka, the Karymsky Volcano, has spewed out a 7-kilometer column of ash. Reports by RIA Novosti say about 70 earthquakes have been registered in the neighboring area.According to a spokesman for the Kamchatka branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Geophysical Service, the Karymsky eruption has been on at variable rate since 1996.

Lava that gushed out from the top crater and from the bottom of the lake in the early stages of the eruption killed all living organisms in the lake.The volcano poses no danger to populated areas if located 100 kilometers or more from the site.
