Russia – December 14th, 2012

Upon looking closely at Russia’s Plosky Tolbachik Volcano, which became active in late November after 36 years dormant, a tan plume of ash can be seen blowing eastward. The current eruption shows no sign of abating, and is expected to continue at or near the current intensity over the next week, if not longer.
