Mud volcano erupts in Azerbaijan


The Keyraki mud volcano erupted around 07:00am local time.

 

According to the press service of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, the eruption lasted for 15 minutes and the mud covered an area of 3.5ha.

 

The depth of the erupted mud layer reached 3 meters within the crater and 0.2 to 0.3 meter around the crater.

 

The Keyraki mud volcano is situated 12km north of Baku. The eruption caused no damage to the nearby residential areas. However, there are several active mud volcanoes in the area and thus further eruptions cannot be ruled out.

 

Experts of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources are studying the consequences of the eruption.

 

The Keyraki mud volcano has erupted 18 times so far. Last time it had erupted in 2014.
