Awe-inspiring pictures as Kambalny volcano awakens after 248 years

The snow-covered volcano awoke from its hibernation on Saturday provoking excitement among those lucky enough to witness this unexpected eruption, as ash was thrown 7 kilometres high.

Olga Girina, head of the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT), said: ‘This is the first serious volcanic event at Kambalny in the modern history of scientific observations.

‘According to researchers, a strong eruption occurred 600 years ago. There is information about its increased activity about 250 years ago. We are keeping a close look at the volcano. It is difficult to say how the event will unfold.’
