Waves were seen crashing onto Tongan shores amid a tsunami warning across the country after ongoing underwater volcanic activity. According to the New Zealand Herald, Hunga Tonga-Hunga Haʻapai volcano erupted on Friday night, and sent ash, steam and gas up to 17 km (10.5 miles) into the air.
Tsunami waves measuring 2 feet in height were observed by sea-level gauges at the capital of the U.S. territory of American Samoa following volcanic activity in Tonga, the US-based Pacific tsunami warning center said.
Internet is down across Tonga, according to NetBlocks, making it difficult to ascertain the impact of the volcano eruption and tsunami.
What people are saying?
Jae Joseph Due to global warming and how we CONTINUE to be active and willful in destroying this planet, living around water or VERY close to water is NO longer safe NOR practical. This is a NEW time and people will NOW have to adjust to this reality!
Like That Everyone needs to return to God in repentance. Natural disasters, calamities, diseases, etc. all serve as a warning to mankind for if God willed, it could have been worse – Just as the water drowned the people of Noah or the Pharoah We all will return to God after DEATH!
