Moderate potential hazards are caused by ash plumes, ash falls, pyroclastic flows, hot avalanches and lahars.
The volcano constitutes a potential hazard to international and local airlines at Kamchatka because its eruptive clouds can rise to a height of 3-20 km a.s.l. and extend for hundreds of kilometers from the volcano.
Ash falls possible at:
Klyuchi (50 km to the south-west from the volcano)
Ust’-Kamchatsk (90 km to the east-southeast from the volcano)
Ust’-Khairyuzovo (280 km to the west-northwest from the volcano)
