ArabiaWeather - One of the cameras of the Russian Academy of Sciences detected the moment of the eruption of Kamchatka volcano, which threw lava and the smoke and ash cloud rose to a height of more than 8 km.
The Argentine newspaper "Infobay" indicated that in the current month of October there is a significant increase in the occurrence of earthquakes and the energy emitted from earthquakes associated with the fracturing of rocks, which are classified as volcanic, and 229 events are expected to occur.
Volcanic activity continues at the green level, but what is cause for concern is that no less than 141 seismic events have been recorded, most of them in the southwest of Las Minas volcano, at central distances between 2 and 4 km from its summit with depths ranging between 3 and 5 km. While it scored less than 3.2 on the Richter scale.

Scientists said that the largest mass extinction event in Earth's history resulted from a volcanic eruption in Siberia, which led to the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, as the extinction of the Permian - Triassic period, also known as the "Great Death", wiped out 95 % Of marine species and 70% of terrestrial species at that time.
