73: Kamchatka’s Plosky Tolbachik volcano erupts for first time in 36 years

November 29, 2012 KAMCHATKA, RussiaThe 3,085-meter Plosky Tolbachik volcano in Russia’s Far Eastern Kamchatka Peninsula is erupting for the first time in 36 years, according to reports of KVERT, the he volcano monitoring body for Kamchatka. The volcano is located on the peninsula’s eastern coast, 343 km from the region’s capital of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. A bulletin released Tuesday by the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT), as cited by The Voice of Russia, described a significant explosive eruption with the potential for ash explosions up to 10 km. The eruption at Plosky Tolbachik was given code orange (number three on the four-tiered USGS Volcano Alert Level), meaning it “poses limited hazards.” Scientists say the volcano is obscured by clouds at now, but lava intrusions towards the volcano’s summit caldera are also probable. An ash fall was reported in the nearby village of Krasny Yar. The eruption will be closely monitored for its impact on air travel over the eastern Siberian peninsula. The Plosky Tolbachik volcano erupted only 10 times since records began in 1740. –Novinite

    Is the number in the title the number of currently active volcanoes?

    This is number 73… Only 9 more to equal the existing record. One thing I am curious about, is in 2010, which is the existing record for 82 volcanoes erupting, how many of those 82 experienced multiple eruptions? The 73 this year, many have experienced multiple eruptions. What is the record for number of eruptions in one year, counting a second or third eruption of the same volcano as a different eruption?

    Lots of volcano eruptions in 2012. 2013 would be 10 times worse, with most of the big events happening in early 2013-to mid 2013.
