October 10 2007

According to the meteorological stations of the North - Kurilsk (Paramushir), October 10 at 1:55 local time spewed volcanic gases Ebeko volcano. In North-Kurilsk felt faint smell of hydrogen sulfide. Volcano clouds closed.

As reported in the management of the Sakhalin hydrometeorological service on Wednesday, the volcano is located six miles from the town of Severo-Kurilsk. Ebeko intensified in January 2005, when the background of constant fumarolic activity has sharply increased emissions of volcanic gases from the active crater of the North Crater.

Toxic constituents of volcanic gases (sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen chloride, etc.) is heavier than air and therefore they are free to "slipping" of the city. All streams of the city are also associated with this volcano (in the watercourses fall acids and such dangerous substances such as selenium and arsenic), reports Interfax news agency.
