Tonga: Videos of Volcanic Tsunami Circulate

After this Saturday there was a Tsunami on the island of Tonga as a result of the eruption of the submarine volcano Hunga-Tonga-Hunga-Ha’apai, various videos circulate where you can see the increase in waves and the unusual behavior of the sea in different parts of the Pacific.

After the various reports, National Civil Protection as well as the dependencies have issued alerts to prevent the population from entering the sea or staying in a nearby area where there is water.

Some streets of Santa Cruz in California looked flooded, due to the overflow of the sea.

The consequences of the tsunami also reached the shores of Coquimbo in Chile.

The Twitter account “Wonder of Science” shared a Gif captured from the GOES-West and Himawari-8 satellites.
