    PETROPAVLOVSK-KAMCHATSKY, March 1, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - The growth of seismic activity of the Kizimen volcano was registered in Kamchatka (Russia's Far East), the Kamchatka experimental-methodical seismological party reported.

    On Monday in the vicinity of the volcano, which remained inactive for many years, four earthquakes of magnitude 1.75-3.75 points were registered.

    Dense clouds and heavy snowfalls obstruct the video observation of the volcano activity.

    According to specialists, the lack of information does not allow to speak about the new eruption of the volcano.

    The Kizimen volcano (it's height 2,485 meters) is situated in the north of the Kronotsky preserve near the popular for tourists Schapinsky thermal springs.

    The last famous eruption of the volcano was registered in 1929.
