Volcanic Eruption and Tsunami in Tonga

The Hunga Tonga Hunga Ha’apai underwater volcano in Tonga erupted on the 15 January 2022. The eruption sent a tsunami towards the coastal areas of Tonga’s capital, Nuku’alofa on the main island of Tongatapu. Waves reportedly reaching a height of 15 metres have caused severe damaged with many buildings near the waterfront completely destroyed.
