Russ Steele

There are reports of a violent volcanic eruption of Mount Shiveluch on Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula.

Smoke and ash from the volcano have climbed to 10 kilometres, sparking no-fly warnings for the surrounding area. Snow around the crater is rapidly melting, creating mudslides.

Shiveluch is the northernmost active volcano in Kamchatka Krai, Russia. It is one of Kamchatka’s largest and most active volcanoes.

This eruption could have some winter weather impacts for California. Stay Tuned.
