MOSCOW, Russia – The Geophysical Service of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) has issued an “orange” risk warning to aviation authorities and an advisory to airlines has been released to not flying over the Kamchatka mountains where four volcanoes have become more active including Shiveluch, Karymsky, Kizimen, and Flat Tolbachik, reported the Dispatch News Desk.

According to experts, the ash from these volcanoes can cause fatal consequences. The particles can be caught in aircraft engines and then a crash would be inevitable. Shiveluch volcano is throwing a column of ash to a height almost 4,500 meters above sea level, while Karymsky volcano is spewing ash at a height of about 2,700 meters above sea level . In the Geophysical Survey, RAS assured that the volcanic activity for the local population was not serious.

The Kamchatka peninsula is a 1,250-kilometer (780-mile) peninsula in the Russian Far East, with an area of about 270,000 km2 (100,000 square miles). It lies between the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Sea of Okhotsk to the west. Immediately offshore along the Pacific coast of the peninsula runs the 10,500-meter (34,400-foot) deep Kuril-Kamchatka Trench.
