Volcanoes of Kamchatka Awake

Seismologists detected over 60 separate shocks near Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.

PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY. March 27. VOSTOK MEDIA:Volcanoes of Kamchatka Awake - Koryaksky and Avachinsky volcanoes, located 25 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, have become more active. Specialists of the Geophysical Service detected the highest activity on March 25. Over 60 separate seismic shocks were registered by the devices in the volcanic area. Visual observation is complicated in view of weather conditions. A veil of clouds hides tops of the volcanoes. The last eruption of a volcano from the group of the Kamchatka “home” volcanoes – Avachinsky – occurred in 1991. As all three volcanoes are seen within a distance of 100 km, the eruption could be seen by dwellers of Petropavlovsk and closely located towns.
