Reports from Russia say that the Kamchatkan volcano Shiveluch has produced an ash emission to an estimated altitude (based on seismic data) of 7 km. KVERT reports that the ash plume was associated with a ‘shallow seismic event’ lasting four minutes. No ashfall on nearby settlements has been reported, and KVERT says that this event poses no danger to local communities.

No volcanic ash advisory has been issued by Tokyo VAAC for this event.
