PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, June 21 Ash fall from the eruption of the Karymsky volcano is possible in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Vilyuchinsk and part of the Elizovsky region, the press service of the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations for the Kamchatka Territory reported.
“”The ash plume is spreading in the south-west direction. On the path of the ash plume there are Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Vilyuchinsky urban districts, as well as the Elizovsky municipal district. Volcanic ash may fall out there,” the report says.
