In Russia, a volcano that was considered to be inactive woke up: an eruption can occur at any time.
On Earth, a volcano can wake up, which was previously classified as inactive. This leads scientists to suggest that at any time its eruption may begin, threatening to kill people living nearby.
Scientists claim that the Bolshaya Udina volcano in the eastern part of Russia was considered inactive until 2017, when they recorded increased seismic activity under it, writes Fox News.
"The eruption can happen at any moment," said Ivan Kulakov, a geophysicist at the Russian Institute. Trofimuk, who led the study of the volcano's activity.
In the period from 1999 to September 2017, under the volcano, about 100 seismic shocks were recorded. This number increased in 25 from October 2017 to February 2019, when almost 2400 jolts were recorded.

In February, an area of 4,3 magnitude earthquake struck the area.
Researchers from Russia, Egypt and Saudi Arabia installed four seismic monitoring stations under the volcano from May to June last year. They determined that the “elliptical cluster” of seismic activity was formed about three miles from the surface.
“These seismic properties may indicate the presence of magmatic intrusions with a high [...] fluid content, which may justify a change in the current state of this volcano from“ inactive ”to“ active, ”the researchers say.
Kulakov says that what is happening on Big Udine is similar to the events on Bezimyannom volcano in Russia, which began to erupt sharply in 1956 year. The scientist estimates the chances for an eruption in Udine to be 50 percent.

“We need to deploy more stations to understand if it is dangerous or not,” Kulakov said. "It's very unpredictable." He says that the energy can be released from the volcano over the next few months, or even disappear without any eruption.
"In the event of a volcanic eruption, it could pose a serious threat to small villages nearby," he said, adding that "there are not many people around."
