The Ebeko volcano in the Northern Kuril Islands threw out a column of ash 2 km high

“No ashfall was observed in the city of Severo-Kurilsk. There was no smell of hydrogen sulfide. There is no threat to the livelihoods of the population,” the statement said.

They clarified that the ash plume stretched for a distance of up to 5 km in a south-easterly direction.

Earlier, on March 12, Ebeko was marked ash emission 3 km high. No consequences noted.

Ebeko Volcano is a complex stratovolcano with several summit craters. It is located in the northern part of Paramushir and became active in mid-November 2016. It has an orange aviation hazard color code, which means the volcano is highly active and has a high probability of erupting.
