The growth of the lava dome at Sheveluch volcano continues. This activity is accompanied by strong fumarole activity, an incandescence of the lava dome, explosions, and pyroclastic flows.
One notable pyroclastic flow was recorded at 02:48 UTC on November 29:
Video data by KVERT showed an ash plume associated with this pyroclastic flow was extending 10 km (6.2 miles) NW of the volcano at 03:22 UTC.
The extrusive eruption of the volcano continues, KVERT added. Ash explosions up to 10 – 15 km (32 800 – 49 200 feet) a.s.l. could occur at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft.
