"On November 4, the emergencies control center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry's department in the Sakhalin Region received information that the Ebeko volcano was seen spewing ash to a height of up to 4.5 kilometers. The plume of ash has moved to the northeast of the volcano, to a distance of up to five kilometers," the statement read.
The town of Severo-Kurilsk, located seven kilometer away from the volcano, has not experienced ash fall, the statement added.
According to the statement, the situation on the island is non-life threatening for local residents.
Ebeko awoke from dormancy in 2016 and has repeatedly spewn ash since then.
