Live Cam Avachinsky Bay, Vilyuchinsky Volcano, Russia
Avachinsky is an active stratovolcano on the Kamchatka Peninsula in the far east of Russia. It lies within sight of the capital of Kamchatka Krai, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Together with neighboring Koryaksky volcano, it has been designated a Decade Volcano, worthy of particular study in light of its history of explosive eruptions and proximity to populated areas.
Avachinsky’s last eruption occurred in 2008. This eruption was tiny compared to the volcano’s major Volcanic Explosivity Index 4 eruption in 1945.
