"The height of the ash column was up to 3 thousand meters, while the height of the giant itself was 3283 meters," the press service said.

It is noted that the ash plume spread over a distance of 30 km to the northwest.

There are no settlements in this direction.

Rescuers warned that the maximum permissible gas concentration may be exceeded near the volcano during steam and gas emissions.

In addition, being nearby, there is a possibility of falling into ash falls.

Earlier, the volcano Ebeko on the Kuril island of Paramushir, during an eruption, threw out a column of ash to a height of 3.7 km.
