The Shiveluch volcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula is throwing a plume of ash 3 miles into the atmosphere in the latest of a series of eruptions that began in May 2009, RIA Novosti reported Saturday.
The northernmost active volcano on the peninsula periodically emits ash to heights of 2 to 5 miles, the Kamchatka Geophysical Services said.
Scientists have registered more than 180 earthquakes in the area surrounding the volcano.
There is no significant threat to villages around the volcano -- Klyuchi, at 25 miles, is the closest -- except the possibility of moderate ash fall, experts said.
