The KVERT notes a continuous strombolian and vulcanian activity on 15 and 16.10.2013 , and lava flows on a large western sector . The plume rose to 10 km. on 15 , extending north along 480 km and to southwest along 150 km. On 16.10 , it rose to 7.5 km to extend over a hundred km. to SO .

On 16.10, lava flows on the SW flank of the volcano. The eruption in the pass separating the Klyuchevskoy and the Kamen has melted part of Bogdanovich glacier, causing a flow of hot water in the river Studenaya that destroyed the road near the village of Kozyrevsk .
The magnitude of the tremor was 133.7 mcm/s 15 and 138.8 mcm/s 16 .
The Aviation Code was raised to Red on 17, 18, and 19 october .

The growth of the lava dome continues with a night glow and avalanches of blocks.

On 17, ashy explosions, moderate to severe, produced a plume growing between 4 and 6 km .

The explosions are accompanied by a rising plume of 8-9 km on 18.10 , which then extends more than 1,100 km to the SE . Satellite data reveal two large thermal anomalies, one over the summit, the other located SW of the summit. Seismicity remains high , with a tremor of 312.4 mcm/s.

The activity is the same on 19.10 , with a rising plume at 8 km and extending over 1300 km SE of Klyuchevskoy .

On 20.10 , the peak phase of the explosive eruption ends at 13h UTC , with a decrease in the level of seismicity and tremor , which passes to 150.4 mcm/s just before 13h, and then collapses to 3.3 mcm/s within hours .

The outpouring of lava continues on the south and west sides , and the ash plume rises 8 km drifting to E and SE of the volcano. The aviation code is lowered to orange.
