Klyuchevskaya Sopka Volcano Erupts in Kamchatka, Russia

Eurasia’s tallest active volcano emitted columns of ash into the sky above Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula as it erupted on October 30, according to reports.

Activity intensified on October 31, spurring the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT) to issue a red alert for aviation, as the activity could impact low-flying aircraft.

Russian officials said eruptions had become calmer as of November 2, but said that the area was still dangerous.
