El volcán Shiveluch amenaza con una potente erupción

By Jordi Bou

November 22, 2022 - La actividad volcánica se está incrementando en el extremo oriente de Rusia, el volcán Shiveluch se prepara potencialmente para su erupción más potente en 15 años.

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.
