Klyuchevskoy , Kamchatka:

Klyuchevskoy volcano in Russia’s Far East sends ash seven kilometers high.

10 AUGUST 2016. Klyuchevskoy volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East has spewed ash up to seven kilometers into the sky, the Kamchatka Volcanic Response Team (KVERT) told Tass on Wednesday. « The volcano continues erupting. The ash plume has spread 264 kilometers east and southeast of the volcano, » its source said.

An ‘orange’ aviation alert code has been assigned to the volcano, second after the highest – red code, warning about the hazard eruptions may pose to aircraft flying on local and international routes. No ash fall has been registered in settlements of the region, the Kamchatka department of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations reports.



The Klyuchevskoy, also known as the Klyuchevskaya Sopka, is located 360 km to the north-west of the capital of the Kamchatka Krai, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The nearest town, Klyuchi, is separated from it by a distance of 30 km and is home to about 5,000 people at present. The volcano, which is believed to be about 7,000 years old, has the height of 4,750 meters above the sea level. Apart from being the largest active volcano in Eurasia, it is also the highest mountain in Russia outside the Caucasus.

The volcano started spewing ash in early April. Scientists say the current volcanic activity is moderate. All in all, the Kamchatka peninsula has 29 active volcanoes.

Fuego, Guatemala :

Activity type : vulcanian
Morphology: composite Stratovolcano
Geographical location: 14 ° 28’54 « North Latitude, 90 ° 52’54 » West Longitude.
Elevation: 3,763 m
Conditions: Clear
Wind: 3 kmh
Precipitation: 0.0mm.


Persistence of a fumarole white moderate, at a height of 4200 m above sea level (13,779 ft) which is dispersed to the West and Southwest. 8 explosions , 3 of low intensity and 5 of moderate intensity were reported, emitting a gray column to a height of about 4.200 to 4.600 m. (13.779 to 15.091 ft) moving to the west and southwest of the volcano.

The explosions sent incandescent impulses that amounted to a height of 200 meters above the crater, creating low to moderate avalanches around the edge of the crater, these explosions were accompanied by low rumbles.

Popocatepetl , Mexico :

August 10 11:00 h (August 10 16:00 GMT)

In the last 24 hours the seismic records of the surveillance system at Popocatépetl volcano registered 129 low-intensity exhalations, with emissions of gas, steam and ash, seven explosions, five yesterday at 10h04, 10h09, 13h49, 17h29 , and 21h54 , the others two today at 06h10 and 09h38 , 166 minutes of harmonic tremor and one volcanotectonic event yesterday at 22h01 with magnitude Mc1.8.



The cloudy conditions not allow observing the volcano continuously, but we observed an emission of steam and gas that winds carried to the northwest . Along some lapses of the night was observed incandescence, increasing with main exhalations .

From dawn and up to the time of this report the cloudy condition dont allow to observe continuously the crater, however it is identified that the preferred direction of events is west-northwest .

Other monitoring parameters remain unchanged

CENAPRED emphasizes that people SHOULD NOT go near the volcano, especially near the crater, due to the hazard caused by ballistic fragments .
This type of activity is included within the scenarios Volcanic Traffic Light Yellow Phase 2.
