Shiveluch Vulkan droht mit mächtiger Eruption
November 22, 2022 -
Vulkan Aktivitäten nehmen in Russlands fernen Osten stark zu, der Shiveluch Vulkan auf der Halbinsel Kamtschatka steht kurz vor seiner ersten Eruption in 15 Jahren.
Six volcanoes in Russia's far eastern Kamchatka peninsula are currently showing signs of increased activity, including the Shiveluch and Eurasia's highest active volcano Klyuchevskaya Sopka, which began erupting last Thursday.
Kamchatka is home to 29 active volcanoes, part of a vast belt of Earth known as the “Ring of Fire” which circles the Pacific Ocean and is prone to eruptions and frequent earthquakes.
Big eruptions in the peninsula can spew glass, rock and ash into the sky, posing risk to international air traffic.
