Shiveluch Volcano in Kamchatka, in the Russian Far East, erupted at 02:30 local time, Russian media reported on Monday. The volcano is continuously spewing clouds of ash and smoke soaring some 10,000 meters into the air.

The wind is carrying clouds of ash towards the Ust-Kamchtask, the largest nearby settlement, located some one hundred kilometers from Shiveluch. Volcanologists said the eruption poses no danger to the local population, the Echo of Moscow radio station quoted them as saying. But volcanic ash when it settles can poison humans and animals. The layer of ash on the streets of Ust-Kamchatsk has reached 3-5 mm, the ITAR-TASS news agency has reported.

There are no reports of damage or injuries at the moment, but the road between Ust-Kamchtask and other parts of the region is in danger of being covered in ash, dust, dirt and rocks, making it impassable.

Shiveluch (3,283 metres high) is the most northerly volcano on Kamchatka, where 28 other volcanoes are situated. Its large-scale eruptions are registered every 100-300 years, with smaller ones occuring more often. Major eruptions were recorded in 1854 and 1964, and the volcano awoke again in 2001. In 2002 Shiveluch rumbled and spewed ash and steam 4,000 meters into the air. It had been displaying greater activity since January of this year.
