A Tsunami Hits The Tonga Islands After The Eruption Of Submarine Volcano

An underwater volcano erupted near the Kingdom of Tonga on Friday, followed by a tsunami shortly afterwards.

Authorities across the Pacific immediately issued tsunami warnings and urged people to avoid coastal areas.

Immediately after the eruption of the Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha'apai underwater volcano, a cloud of ash and water vapor rose into the air, and friction caused a tsunami in Tonga. Waves flooded coastal areas, many telephone connections were cut off.

A tsunami alert has also been issued for the entire west coast of the United States, where waves up to 2 ft (60 cm) high are forecast. Lower parts of Hawaii have already been flooded by tsunami waves, but no major damage has been reported so far.
