Volcanic eruption in Kamchatka

Description

If Nevinnomyssk was suffering from too much water, authorities in Kamchatka were bracing for an onslaught of two of the other elements - earth and fire. Rescue squads had been on high alert for most of September of 2006 keeping a close eye on local volcano Mt. Shiveluch after increasingly loud rumblings and increasingly violent tremors. Finally, on September 22, the 10,000 foot tall volcano erupted, shooting streams of hot ash, gas and steam over a mile straight up into the sky. The next night, the lava begins flowing.
