Kronotsky State Reserve falls ashes from the ongoing eruption on the volcano Kambalny. Abundant fallout of ash can have a serious impact on the environment of the nearby South Kamchatka Federal Reserve.
Today, the eruption of the volcano has continued and an ash plume of at least one thousand kilometers long stretches to the southwest. The products of the eruption flooded the southwestern slope of the Kambal and the cordon “Pribrezhny”, located on the shore of the Sea of Okhotsk, 18 kilometers from the foot of the volcano.
In view of the instability of the situation and the unpredictability of Kambalnoye, the exercises of the personnel located in the territory of the South Kamchatka Federal Wildlife Preserve will be completed very soon. State inspectors will work out actions in case of intensification of activity of the volcano.
