VLADIVOSTOK - A volcano in Russia's Far East spewed ash high into the sky on Tuesday following a series of tremors, local media reported.

The column of ash from the 3.3-km-high Shiveluch volcano reached up to 7.3 km above sea level, according to the Itar-Tass news agency.

No impact or damage has been reported vis-a-vis the powerful outburst, which came in the wake of a chain of seismic events around the region.

Located on the Kamchatka peninsula, Shiveluch has been active since September 1980.
