Russian volcano erupted on December 19, 2007
Powerful flows of ash were coming from the volcano crater along with gas flows and fragments of magma substances with the temperature reaching 800 degrees Centigrade.
Ash belches went up to 10-12 kilometres high. Satellite photos distinctly show a 600-kilometre ash plume going west from the volcano.
At the moment specialists register powerful explosions in the volcano crater; it is said that in the closest time another eruption may take place.
