Russian volcano eruption described as biggest fallout in 60 years

Russian Volcano

Mathew 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

Important Takeaways:

  • Volcano eruption on Russia’s Kamchatka sends dust clouds 20km into the sky
  • The ash cloud from the eruption of Shiveluch, one of Kamchatka’s most active volcanoes, extended over 500km northwest and engulfed several villages in grey volcanic dust.
  • Officials closed the skies over the area to aircraft. Local authorities advised residents to stay indoors. Schools in several affected communities were shut and two villages had their power supplies cut for a few hours until emergency crews restored them.
  • Ash fell on 108,000 square kilometres (41,699 square miles) of territory, according to the regional branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Geophysical Survey. Scientists described the fallout as the biggest in nearly 60 years.
  • The Kamchatka Peninsula, which extends into the Pacific Ocean about 6,600km east of Moscow, is one of the world’s most concentrated area of geothermal activity, with about 30 active volcanoes.
