– Powerful Eruption At Shiveluch, Kamchatka, Russia (The Watchers, Sep 25, 2014):
A powerful eruption was observed at Russian Shiveluch volcano at 00:41 UTC on September 24, 2014. Ash plume rose up to 11 km (38 000 feet) altitude.
The eruption generated several pyroclastic flows, some of which surpassed the 350 m high western caldera wall.
The explosion could have been a result of gas pressure that slowly build up under the lava dome’s plug of viscous lava, VolcanoDiscovery said.
