Volcano wakes up on Kamchatka

The volcano Gorely, which is situated on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the Sea of Okhotsk, has woken up to heightened seismic activity.

According to a source in the Laboratory of Active Volcanism at the Institute of Volcanology, a seismic station located on the top of the Gorely registered continuous tremors that were four times stronger than the background tremors, and smoke and steam kicks up to 300 meters high.

Volcanologists believe the volcano, which has been dormant since 1985, may shortly erupt again. The volcano is situated in the southern part of Kamchatka, 75 kilometres southwest of the peninsula's administrative center of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky.
