Raikkok Volcano, on the Central Kuriles, which was in sleep mode for about 100 years, woke up. Scientists note that he throws out columns of ash and smoke over a distance of thirteen kilometers.

As reported RIA News, with reference to the specialists of the Institute of Marine Geology and Geophysics of the Far East Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the eruption began early on Saturday local time, and in the first twelve hours, experts counted nine volcanic explosions.

A cloud of smoke and ash that rose into the air is a danger to aircraft. True, it has now begun to gradually dissipate and the red danger code for the aircraft has already been changed to orange. The volcano itself continues to spew weak steam-gas emissions into the sky.
