Possible consequences of Shiveluch volcano
The Kamchatka region where Shiveluch is located is part of the region known as the “Ring of Fire” and is home to 29 other active volcanoes. Most volcanoes do not pose a high risk to the local population, but large eruptions can produce glass debris, rock and volcanic ash.
According to KVERT, lava and volcanic plumes indicate that Shiveluch will erupt. Then, The threat is marked with an “orange” warning, as the explosion could pose a real risk to international flights in the area🇧🇷
Scientists explain that in reality the volcano has been in continuous eruption since August 1999, but some events caused stronger eruptions. Because it’s close to the Pacific Ocean, earthquakes are more common in the area, which can cause these massive explosive events.
