Magnitude-6.2 quake shakes east Russia
Feb. 20, 2011
- A magnitude-6.2 earthquake rattled the east coast of Russia near the Kamchatka Peninsula. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, and no tsunami alert was issued.
The quake struck at 9:43 a.m. at the epicenter (4:43 Eastern time, 2143 GMT Sunday), Which was some 4,140 miles (6,660 kilometers) east of Moscow, the USGS said, closer to Japan than the Russian capital.
The center of the quake was about 5.8 miles (9.3 kilometers) deep, the agency reported.

2 volcanoes on Kamchatka Peninsula
March 12, 2011
 In the Russian Far East, there has been a strong volcanic eruption. The air got a great cloud of volcanic dust, which can pose a threat to air traffic in the region.
Local experts warn that, dust can rise up to a height of seven kilometers.
Explosions were accompanied by minor earthquakes.
Russian service monitoring the activity of cones, however, ensure that the implemented measures guarantee the safety of residents of neighboring towns. According to Russian media reports, the first cloud of dust covered the city of Ust-Kamczatsk. Over five thousand people are forced to stay at home. The authorities have recommended the strict ban on opening windows. The population, however, was not evacuated, and experts say that the dust does not constitute a great danger. Despite this, from Thursday, all offices of state institutions and organizations have suspended work – except in cases of emergency. For some time, also closed roads in the region. While this eruption does not seem to be a significant threat to the people in Russia, the fact that an earthquake in Japan could have triggered a volcano eruption in Russia does have some significance

Kamchatka’s Bezymianny volcano put on highest alert- eruption can happen anytime
March 8, 2012
- Bezymianny, one of the most active volcanoes in the world has been put on aviation color code red, the highest alert given by the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team. KVERT assigned the code on Tuesday and warns of an imminent eruption. “Activity of the volcano continuously increases,” says the alert. “Strong ash explosions up to 42,640 ft (13 km) a.s.l. possible at any time. Ongoing activity could affect international and low-flying aircraft. –Weather Space

Kamchatka’s Bezymianny volcano erupts, expels ash cloud 8 km high
March 9, 2012
– Friday saw a new eruption of the Bezymianny volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Russian Far East. Earlier in the day, the volcano spewed ash up to 8 kilometers high, seismologists said, adding that the eruption does not pose a threat to population centers in the area. One of the most active volcanoes in the world, Bezymianny is located 350 kilometers northeast of the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. During its most powerful eruption in 1956, the 2,800-meter volcano ejected about three cubic kilometers of volcanic debris in a very short time. –Voice of Russia

February 26, 2012 at 01:17:19 PM at epicenter

Russian Volcano Spews Ash to 9,500 Meters
April 17, 2012
Russia's northernmost active volcano is churning out ash to a height of 9,500 meters (over 31,000 feet) in the country's Far East, local scientists reported on Tuesday.
The 3,283-meter (10,771-foot) Shiveluch volcano increased activity in May 2009 and has been periodically spewing ash from three to ten kilometers.
“A powerful eruption of ashes took place 05.59 a.m. local time [17:59 GMT on Monday], a source at the Far Eastern Institute of Volcanology and Seismology said.
The official said the column of ashes could be clearly seen from a distance of 40 kilometers spreading to the east.
“It is the most powerful eruption this year,” the expert said.

Fires, Smoke in Central Russia
June 15, 2012   Russia has declared a state of emergency in several eastern regions due to hundreds of wildfires. NASA's Terra satellite captured this image of fires and smoke in north central Russia.
The red spots are where the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument that flies aboard the Terra satellite detected heat signatures. Dry conditions, agricultural burning, lightning and human involvement have contributed to many wildfires across Siberia over the last few weeks.

7.7 magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Russia
August 14, 2012
A 7.7 magnitude earthquake struck along a deep region of the sea-floor in the Sea of Okhotsk,
between the remote island of Poronaysk and the Russian peninsula of Kamchatka.
The earthquake struck at a depth of 625 km or 389 miles below the surface of the ocean floor.
It was orginally thought the quake was a twin pair.
The USGS posted the 7.7 quake, as two separate 7.3 seismic events and then later corrected the listing.
COMMENT - Intellicasts website is showing 3 earthquakes! Two 7.3s and a 7.7!
California has had two 5.1 earthquakes tonight too! One in the northern central valley and one south of San Francisco.

Earthquakes hit Kuril Islands
9 Sep 2012
 Two earthquakes hit Kuril Islands in the Russian Far East. The first quake of 5.6 point magnitude on the Richter scale was recorded near the island of Paramushir, says seismological station in the city of Severo-Kurilsk. Glass-ware ringed in cupboards for ten seconds, and ceiling lamps rocked.
The second earthquake with a magnitude of 5.3 points in Richter scale took place in the deep-water Kurilo-Kamchatka trench. The epicenter was located 270 kilometers east of the city of Kurilsk on the island of Iturup.

Kuril's Alaid volcano wakes
25 Oct 2012
-  The Kuril Island volcano named Alaid, in Russia's Far East has begun spewing ash with the giant ash cloud rising to an altitude of up to 700 meters.
The Alaid Volcano is the tallest and northernmost volcano in the islands, with a crater which is approximately 1.5-km-wide.
The first signs of activity were recorded on October 7th when thermal anomalies were observed a cloud of steam appeared.
Volcanologists are issuing warnings regarding the likelihood of an eruption of ash emissions which may reach a height of 10-15 kilometers above sea level.

A hot spot is visible on recent MODIS satellite images at the volcano and a dense steam plume drifting SE can be seen on a Aqua satellite image from 16 Nov 2012. Although KVERT lists the volcano as green, it is likely that some activity is occurring at the volcano.

6.2 magnitude earthquake shakes Russia's Far East, close to China and North Korea
4/5/13  An earthquake of 6.2 magnitude was registered in the border area between Russia, China and North Korea, the US Geological Survey said Friday.
The epicenter of the quake was 9km from the Russian village of Zarubino, about 60km northeast of the North Korean city of Aodzhiri and approximately 608 km from the capital Pyongyang. No casualties or damage have been reported.
The earthquake struck at a depth of 561.9 km.

As the epicenter of the quake is not within North Korea itself, the South Korean Defense Ministry said that the quake did in fact result from natural causes, and not a nuclear test.
Both earthquakes and nuclear tests create seismic waves, and the earthquake comes as Pyongyang has recently threatened to launch a nuclear strike against the US.

On Friday, North Korea warned that it would be unable to guarantee the safety of embassies and international organizations in the country in the event of conflict starting from April 10.
In March, a 6.1-magnitude earthquake shook the northern part of Russia's Kamchatka Peninsula in the country’s Far East, and a 6.9 earthquake struck south of the peninsula in late February.  

Neither resulted in causalities or significant damages.
An underground formation in the area known as the Kuril-Kamchatka arc is one of the most seismically active regions in the world.
The USGS says that since 1900, seven massive earthquakes registering 8.3 on the Richter Scale or higher have occurred along the arc.

Strong 6.8 magnitude earthquake hits remote Russian Far East
Feb 14, 2013  MOSCOW
-  A strong 6.8 magnitudeearthquake shook the Sakha region in Russia's Far East.  There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the quake, whose epicentre was recorded 300 kilometres (185 miles) north of the village of Ust-Nera.  The quake struck 10 kilometres (six miles) below ground at 5:13 Moscow time.

Snowiest winter in 100 years
Feb. 2013
The snowiest winter in a century has paralyzed Moscow traffic.
­Since the beginning of the winter, over 2 meters of snow has fallen on the Russian capital, the Moscow mayor’s aide in housing and public utilities Pyotr Biryukov told Interfax. Snowfall is expected in Moscow for four or five more days. 26 cm of snow – nearly a fifth of the average annual fall.  The latest snowfall has become a nightmare for drivers with the capital’s commuters trapped in gridlock.  Many of those who left their workplace in the evening had to spend five to 10 hours getting home. The average speed of vehicles was no more than 7-9 km/h. The number of road accidents – 3,000 – was much higher than during an ordinary day, with minor accidents quadrupling, according to Channel One TV.

Magnitude 6.9 quake hits off Russia's Kamchatka
28 Feb 2013
- A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck near the southern tip of Russia's Kamchatka peninsula, at a depth of around 52 km (33 miles), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported.
The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami, based on historical earthquake and tsunami data.
Britain's BBC quoted Russia's Emergencies Ministry as saying there were no reports of casualties or damage, and that no tsunami warning had been issued.

6.1 quake off Kamchatka, far east of Russia
24 Mar 2013 -
 A 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of far-eastern Russia early Sunday, the US Geological Survey reported.
The quake, which hit at 0418 GMT at a depth of 9.7 kilometres (six miles), was centred 269 kilometres from the eastern Russian city of Ozernovsky, on the southern tip of the Kamchatka peninsula.
The USGS said an underground formation there called the Kuril-Kamchatka arc is considered one of the most seismically active regions in the world.
Since 1900, seven powerful earthquakes of magnitude 8.3 or greater have occurred along the arc, the USGS said.

RUSSIA * Massive hot water geyser erupts in parking lot
April 19, 2013
– Cameras in Russia seem to capture everything from fiery meteors to crazy crashes. The latest video comes from a camera mounted high above the main square in Smolensk, overlooking a busy parking lot on what appears to be a nice sunny day. It takes but seconds for a small cloud of steam, appearing harmless at first, to erupt into a hot water geyser rivaling Old Faithful. What you don’t see from the video are the brick-sized chunks of pavement and rocks that were launched into the air and onto the surrounding vehicles. Within minutes, a large flow of water has flooded the parking area as the natural geyser continues to spew water and steam hundreds of feet into the air. If this happened in our backyard, we would hightail it out of town fearing another eruption of Vesuvian magnitude – yet the locals in Smolensk seem only slightly disrupted, continuing to seek open spots in the parking lot despite the odd chaos mere yards away. –Auto Blog

Kamchatka *  Karymsky volcano unleashes 3100 meter ash cloud
Dec 17, 2010
-  A volcano in the Russian Far East peninsula erupted, prompting experts to raise the hazard level caused by the possible massive eruption.

The volcano Kizimen, located in the Kamchatka Peninsula, has spewed ashes as high as 10 km into sky and the western slope of the mountain has been covered with ashes due to high winds.

The snow on the slope was thawing quickly, pushing river water level up by 60 cm.  Specialists don't rule out the possibility of a massive eruption of Kizimen, which has remained dormant for 80 years.  The Kamchatka Peninsula has a high density of volcanoes, flanked by large volcanic belts containing about 160 volcanoes, with 29 of them still active.

Karymsky volcano unleashes 3100 meter ash cloud
March 16, 2012  KAMCHATKA Aviation alert code orange
–  Karymsky volcano, erupting in Kamchatka, alert level has been raised to a Code Orange threat to aviation, although all routes on the peninsula are stretched so that the planes do not appear in the action zone of active volcanoes.  The height of gases and ash that accompanies the eruption has reached 3,100 meters above sea level. Lava has been detected oozing from the slopes of volcano.   Karymsky is one of the most active volcanoes in Kamchatka.

Powerful 8.3 earthquake off east coast of Russia
May 24, 2013
A powerful earthquake has struck off the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia's far east.
Authorities in the eastern province of Sakhalin initially issued a tsunami warning but this has now been lifted.
The US Geological Survey said the earthquake was of a magnitude of 8.3, but Russian authorities estimated the size of the earthquake at 6.7.
Soon after the earthquake, tremors were felt across Russia but it is unclear if they were linked.

The tremors reached as far as the capital Moscow, some 7,000km (4,500 miles) to the west. The last time tremors were felt in Moscow was some 30 years ago.
The epicentre of the quake, which struck at 15:44 local time (05:44 GMT), was in the Sea of Okhotsk to the west of the Kamchatka peninsula, around 600 km (380 miles) under the sea.
The area is sparsely populated. The most significant population centre is the city of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy on the Kamchatka peninsula, famous for its active volcanoes.

Residents of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskiy, around 400 km from the epicentre, briefly ran out of buildings and schoolchildren were evacuated, the Associated Press reports.
However, there are no reports of casualties or significant damage.
The strength of the earthquake is very unusual, even on Russia's most active geological fault.


Russia Shiveluch Volcano Spews Ash 3 Miles High
August 5, 2013
Russia’s northernmost active volcano churned out ash to a height of up to five kilometers (three miles) in the country’s Far East.  The 3,283-meter (10,771 feet) Shiveluch volcano increased activity in May 2009 and has been periodically spewing ash from three to ten kilometers.
“The cloud of ash moved in the eastern direction from the volcano having bypassed residential areas at the distance of some 50 kilometers [31 miles],” the department said in a statement.
Although the current eruption poses no immediate threat to nearby settlements, the ensuing ash fallouts could be hazardous to health and the environment.
The clouds of volcanic ash could also pose threat to air traffic because the tiny particles cause problems with aircraft engine turbines.
There are more than 150 volcanoes on Kamchatka and up to 30 of them are active.

Quake in Russia’s Far East Prompts Evacuations
May 24, 2013
An 8.3-magnitude earthquake struck Russia’s Far East on Friday, sending tremors that prompted evacuations as far away as Moscow, more than 4,000 miles to the west of the epicenter. The United States Geological Survey recorded the earthquake at 5:44 p.m. local time at a depth of approximately 373 miles below the Sea of Okhotsk, off the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Russian news media reported that reverberations from the earthquake rattled furniture and sent books toppling off of bookshelves in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on the Kamchatka Peninsula, and officials initially told residents on Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands to reach higher ground in case of a tsunami. Russia’s Emergency Ministry later lifted the tsunami warning, and said in a statement that no injuries had been reported. Tremors were felt in more than a dozen regions spanning Russia; in Moscow, local law enforcement officers evacuated 850 people from two apartment buildings after residents said the buildings were shaking.

Chirinkotan Volcano erupts in Kuril Islands - MAP here
May 24, 2013 – RUSSIA, FAR EAST
- The remote volcano in the northern Kuriles is probably in eruption, the latest SVERT report and satellite images suggest. A plume of gas and steam, and possibly some minor amounts ash was seen with the MODIS sensor onboard the NASA Terra satellite this morning. Satellite data also indicate that activity had likely already started in early May, because a small thermal anomaly can be traced back on archive pictures to 7 May. One should take into account that frequent dense cloud cover often prevents such observations, so activity could have started earlier than that. It is not known what kind of activity is occurring at the volcano. Possibilities include some minor explosive (strombolian ?) activity at the summit, or lava flows that might be reaching the sea and produce the steam plume observed. The last eruption of the volcano was (probably) in 2004. –Volcano Discovery
